1- During the DNC, run a lot of 5 second ads that say “Just a reminder: Invest = Spend”. No sound. Devalue (and possibly reverse the favorability of) their obviously poll tested word.
2- As a general counter-attack, always ask whether it’s worth borrowing from China to do whatever the D’s want. Example, “Yes, I like the arts too, but is it worth borrowing from China to pay for the arts when Medicare and Social Security are going broke?”
