    The economy has been growing, so the debt should be shrinking. We should be paying down debt like Clinton did, but Congress Raised the Debt Ceiling. Trump want's to eliminate the Debt Ceiling... LOL Clinton's budget paid down $2 trillion. Trump budget grows it $4 trillion.

    Don't worry, about that fake pause in the debt clock, it just exploded over $20 Trillion when they raised the debt ceiling! Gold is up $150!! US dollar dropped 10%!!!

    Yup- Barrow to the hilt behind the corporate vale, pay yourself big & first, award high-bid contracts to your friends. Then when the stupid idea tanks, let the corp go bankrupt, because you have already got rich milking it for all it's worth.
