@Free or Not? You have an…odd view of history. First of all, national debt is not the same thing as personal debt. Second of all, if you’re going to call out irresponsible politicians, you need to call out the Republican Party. The national debt goes down under Democrats and massively up under Republicans.
After running for decades on a “reduce the debt” platform, Reagan launched it into space once in office. So did Bush I and II – often by cutting taxes for the rich while at the same time raising the budget to pay their cronies in the military-industrial complex. And #45 went beyond all sanity – but what did you expect from a guy who is massively in debt, leveraged to the hilt, and has experienced at least six bankruptcies?
The only time Republicans care about the national debt is when they can use it to attack Democrats trying to fix the problems Republicans created.
