Perhaps I shouldn’t take you serious, Mr. Ramirez. Perhaps I should give you slack because you struggled to come up with a cartoon. So what if it distorts truth. Here’s something for you to work on: of the $17T often quoted as our debt, much of that is invested in infrastructure and education. Or, here’s another way to look at it: About 1/3 is owned by foreigners, the rest by American interests. Should we pay off this debt? Or, here’s a related fact: it was Bush-Cheney who maxed out our federal credit card, leaving Obama to try to re-do the Clinton economy-growing years. Congress cut the legs off that effort so we are stuck with a recovery only slightly better than the EU countries depressed by austerity. Get the point? Cutting spending = Austeritry = No Growth.
