    Who has reduced the debt?

    FYI that means who had a lower principle balance for the debt when they left office than they had when they took office

    Do not confuse deficit with debt

    Which President Increased U.S. Debt the Most?

    Coolidge was the last president to subtract from the national debt

    Every president since Coolidge has added to it

    I don't hate the 1%. If anything I blame the 99% for being a bunch of dumb asses that allow the 1% to get almost all the wealth.

    As far as I know any plan for privatizing social security would be almost exactly the same as our current 401k plans.

    401ks are just a mechanism for shifting wealth from working people into the pockets of the wealthiest.

    Based on the law of supply and demand, and given the hundreds of billions of dollars that are poured into the stock market every week, the stock market should be steadily going up - all else should be insignificant. There should be very little market volatility.

    Market volatility is the mechanism for shifting the wealth.

    But as long as working people see some small increase in their wealth - most of the time - they are content.

    One of the many reasons I think that most working people are dumb asses.

    so you're against investing millions of dollars to make millions of dollars to keep funding SS because you dislike wealthy people? Tell me how that makes wealthy people more wealthy if their money is what is actually added to the millions invested?

    It seems you're against making money. what a fool.

    And I see you don't work. so you are a lazy fk that steals our money.

    Thats absurd. Congress creates the budget using an appropriations process.
