“But you will join with the other 75% of Democrats and vote for politicians who don’t even PRETEND to care.”
Woah, hold on for a second there, churchie. The figure was of those who considered the size of the debt not serious or somewhat serious, not even very serious, but extremely serious. It was listed alongside minor issues such as terrorism, unemployment, healthcare costs, Afghanistan, illegal immigrants, and the like. Kinda illustrious company, don’t you think? Then you nicely collapsed anything less than “consider extremely serious” into “do not care” - sorry, “don’t even PRETEND to care”. Congrats, spinmeister.
Me, personally, I do admit it’s a problem, and a pretty serious one, but there are things that should be higher priority. When unemployment is 3% and the GDP is growing at 2+ percent, then the debt may be the number one economic issue. Wars and crises, however , are not the best times to obsess over deficits.
