    Fuck Rubio and the horse he rode in on.

    Reagan-Bush tax cuts and unfunded wars created most of the debt.

    Does it matter who created the debt if it continues going up regardless of what party is in control?

    If the Democrats created most of the debt, would the debt be any less a problem?

    The debt is NOT our biggest problem.

    Our biggest problem is too much money in too few hands.

    This problem was created by Reagan-Bush lowering taxes for the rich.

    Which also created the debt problem.

    The solution is coming. The Bush tax cuts expire this year.

    So you don't think 14 Trillion dollars of debt is a huge problem? What about the fact that it's inflating our currency? The price of energy and food is going up. That hurts poor and middle class families more than a rich guy having success at his career.

    Rubio is obviously the typical ignorant republican/TPM member: debt, taxes, and other financial issues are solely the responsibility of Congress, not the Executive; he needs to send a letter to himself and other republicans senators.

    We need to cut all aid for other countries and pull our troops out of the middle east. That's how we start balancing the budget! No more fucking nation building ever again.

    Then we can end the epa, education, ect.

    Yes, no need for clean air and water or education for our children

    Listen to yourself.

    81% of the federal budget is interest on the debt, mandatory spending, SS, Medicare, and defense.

    We need to cut defense and let the Bush tax cuts expire.

    Actually the best way to balance the budget is to end baseline budgetting and actually budget according to how much money we have.
