Overall though, as I noted in the Biden thread, I don’t approve of the way the Democrats are going about raising taxation. It’s lazy. 

I think it’s weird to describe tax policy choices as “lazy.”  I’m not really sure what that means.

It means they’re looking for ways to present it to the public as “we’re only taxing the very rich, not you”, as a means to win elections.

This seems like a good place for you to start:  https://www.thebalance.com/us-deficit-by-year-3306306

Summary of the things you're obsessed with:

Debt increase from deficits 2008 - 2016:  $10.5T (roughly) (8 years)
Debt increases from deficits 2017 - 2020:  $7.37T (roughly) (4 years)

If you want to say that is "adding roughly the same" then you do you.  I'll just disagree.

 

Nice link, gives some perspective.

A little bit, but it's not close to the whole picture in terms of decisions made and the environments they were made in.  Seems like it was enough to get it off the "debt" conversation though, so that's good I guess.
