‘We’re So Screwed’: Sen. Mike Lee Slams ‘Uniparty’ For ‘Reckless’ Spending, Calls For Change

Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) has expressed grave concern about the massive interest on the nation’s debt, warning that “we’re so screwed” due to “decades of reckless, hegemonic rule by The Uniparty™️.” His comments come in response to a tweet by E.J. Antoni, a research fellow at the Heritage Foundation, who pointed out that interest on the debt is projected to cost over $1.1 trillion during the current fiscal year.

With the U.S. national debt exceeding $34.5 trillion, Lee took aim at politicians who have been approving massive spending measures. He questioned whether the “fleeting moments of media praise” and “earmarks that served as propellant for most of the spending” were worth the “resulting devastation” and the “crippling economic growth, mobility, and opportunity for hardworking families.”

The senator called for a “new approach in Washington” that acknowledges the nation’s finite resources. He declared that “it’s time to clean house” and warned that the consequences of the current approach will soon become “painfully clear.”

Lee’s strong words highlight the growing concern among some lawmakers about the long-term impact of the nation’s ballooning debt and the need for fiscal responsibility in Washington.
