    Debt climbs faster than tax revenue to pay for it...

    Haven't you heard?

    Cutting the debt is racist.

    I don't know how, it just is.

    10% or less. They have shown inability to be Trusted. Cut them off. Sell assets and pay it down to $2T right away.

    We can't do anything about it but vote in lesser Evils at this point.

    It depends on which party is president.
    When a Republican is president, no amount of debt is too much, there is ALWAYS a rationalization to justify it.

    When a Democrat is president ANY debt is too much and is stealing from our grandchildren.

    havent you heard. Now that Trumps POTUS we have unlimited debt responsibiliy.

    $10 million dollar golfing weekends
    $30-50 BILLION dollar walls 20 feet high
    economic packages that cost $10-15 trillion dollars
    $1 million a day so his trophy wife doesnt have to sleep in the same bed with him

    hell, anything he decides regardless how much it costs taxpayers ITS ALL GOOD !

    and the Trumpbots here will argue to the death supporting him, then blame Clinton/Obama for his spending spree.
