    Debt was only important when the black guy was in office.

    ROFLMAO, no moron that's what I said ... I quoted Dr. Emmanuel (one of the Architects of Obamacare) exactly and his statement says "By 2020 the American Health industry will be extinct" ..... Or is it that you don't understand that collapse and extinct in this context means the same thing?

    Learn how to read.

    Now back to your serial lying issue... I'm still waiting for you to point out where I said "Obamacare was designed to fail"; when in fact I've been saying the opposite all along, that it was designed to collapse the private market and pave the way for single payer and that the chances were very favorable that it would SUCCEED in doing it.

    It's a hilarious that you're such a brainless hyper-partisan droid that you don't even understand the legislation you're waiving your pom-poms over... Sheesh if the Democrats passed legislation that mandated you jump off the roof of the Empire State Building I'm betting you'd be joyously shouting your support for it all the way down.

    Ciao

    You mean debt is important only now that Trump is in office. When Obama was in office a recession jusified a $1.5 trillion dollar deficit.

    Dims have made a stink about the deficit whenever a Republican was in office. On the other hand, they never complain when one of their weasels is in office.

    Sadly isn't that true both ways and a reason little to nothing is ever done concerning the debt.

    Republicans were outraged over debt to stimulate the economy or for disaster relief

    But debt to finance tax cuts for billionaires?
    No problem

    Recessions have that effect on debt — it’s expected. Now, the economy is doing better so the expectation is the deficit should shrink, if not disappear entirely.
