How would you interpret the last phrase “now you pay”? Nationalist China falls to Mao’s armies. Or fell already. Acheson disclosed the collapse. The chorus is now at full howl, Truman presides over the Party of Treason, he and his Democrat cronies have thrown China into the mouth of the Communist dogs, didn’t everyone say he should send more gunpowder to help Chiang Kai-shek? I just hope we won’t be sorry about this, and now we are, now you pay. How would you interpret the last phrase “now you pay”? Thanks. And this excerpt is taken from The Lacuna by Kingsolver.

In this sense, "now you pay" means "now you suffer the consequences for what you did"
