    Because your cousin the deficit is the one who’s actually important in macroeconomics.

    Collectively, we are the wealthiest and most promising society ever. There was a time when the Fear monster was belle of the ball with a dance card full of suitors- Weakness, Pessimism, Cowardice, Greed, Selfishness and many more. America’s progress has too long been haunted by your distractive whiles. “Begone, foul dwimmerlaik, lord of carrion!”
    .
    Our dusty archives are full of double-entry ledger books proving, in red ink, that we will fail. We’ve exposed those money-boogeyman lies before, so there’ll be no trouble with that now. America will master its money intrigues and file the old red stained account books away in museums and archives as historical curiosities of a rich society. We are the people who slay boogeymen.

    Because Republican wars and actions are the largest part of the debt, not “social” programs like SS that has it’s own supplemental taxation to cover costs, if Congress would have just stopped stealing those funds, same for Medicare and Unemployment insurance. Bombs however, and $1.3 trillion and counting for the failed F-35, comes from our taxes, and goes to companies that basically don’t pay any taxes.

    the problem with ss is that the retirement age of 65 was based on germany plan when the average factory worker died at 55 // you should tell bho to put all the $$$ he pulled out of medicare to pay for obumacare

    If that’s the case how did Obama double the national debt while having record revenues?

    And since fractional reserve is no reserve, money is worth nothing. Scary when you realize it’s all just a worldwide psyop.

    ‘Scuse me, Scott: Your debt is money you owe YOUR bank, right? Okay. Good. Guess what, the National Debt is money we owe ourselves. How’s about you All-Out RepubliCons stop pretending we’re on a Gold Standard, playing for SHORT TERM political advantage?
    -
    We can USE debt to create and enhance jobs EXACTLY the way a householder would use a car loan to GROW his or her working prospects. Hello? Scott? Time to think about the COUNTRY and the Country’s FUTURE instead of your next paycheck from Mr. Murdoch and the Ailes Rush ‘News’ Team.

    Probably because first, the first few years were digging us out of the bush recession; then you pushed him to make the bush tax cuts permanent, and he caved in. How do you expect to balance the budget without income?
    The cuts have been done. Unless you mean more from the military.
