Why would I vote against Hillary?
Oh, I don't know...maybe because:

She spent almost her entire political career ENABLING & COVERING UP FOR her sexual deviant, sexually harassing / assaulting / raping, pedophile husband...bullying, attacking, and silencing his victims while declaring out of her OTHER face how 'every woman must be believed'...

Her personal aide was witnessed removing files out of a dead man's office, she declared she knew nothing about them, and they turned up in the personal living quarters of the WH with her fingerprints all over them...

She and Slick...er, Bill were the ONLY participants in 'Whitewater' NOT go to prison...

She and Obama failed to protect a US Ambassador and US citizens in a hostile country while they ran weapons to terrorists...

She and Barry used the US military to help the terrorists who slaughtered 3,000 American on one day to take over their own country....

She paid a Trump-hating foreign spy for Russian-authored Counter-Intelligence propaganda & she and Obama failed in their attempt to use it to alter the outcome of an election and to carry out a political coup against an elected President....

She violated numerous laws - to include Obstruction, violations of both the FOIA & Federal Records Act, and numerous criminal counts of illegally possessing / storing / destroying classified information...not to mention Espionage

...for starters.

The op was about Donald Trump & the federal debt, not about Obama, Hillary, Soros or the Easter Bunny. this is why its so difficult to learn anything on this site.
Am not sure we can spend our way out this round,? what is being said is that econ is strong/ employment is good/ stocks good.? yet the feds cut the rate, markets maybe two much movement? little cuts every place that effects working people, Mitch say's we have to cut SS & Med Care to pay the bills, what's up for working & retired class?

Politics don't make me emotional.
Trump could quadruple the f'n debt, and his "fiscal conservative" drones would kiss his old, fat ass, and thank him.
All this, when the economy was already growing. That's something not even Keynes recommended.

If Trumpsters were intellectually honest (and/or properly informed on the issue), they'd be a little embarrassed.

All that money and we're at 2.1% GDP, little inflation and near-historic lows on Treasury yields. Yikes.

I did the balanced budget crap for decades. Hoping this time around also. Forget it. When you come back to power just cut a trillion dollars from the budget. I know you will do it. Deficit spending when it started brought in a lot more money and growth with the fiat currency. However it should have only been used in emergencies. But not our politicians. Now the deficits and the printing of all that currency keeps any growth from it at a minimum if at all. The day will come when someone does not get paid. But now is not the time.

Donald Trump promised to eliminate debt in 8 years. So far he is wrong-headed and directionless as he is increasing debt remorselessly.

Donald Trump described the debt as a time bomb and he is priming the bomb.

Not one cent has been spent on infrastructure, which was one of Donald Trump's key election policy issues.

"Nobody is a fiscal conservative anymore," especially Donald Trump who is now considering reducing payroll taxes which will further inflate the budget deficit.

Trump's government spends nearly as much paying interest on national debt as it spends on nation's children

TRUMP'S GOVERNMENT SPENDS NEARLY AS MUCH PAYING INTEREST ON NATIONAL DEBT AS IT SPENDS ON NATION'S CHILDREN
BY NICOLE GOODKIND ON 8/13/19 AT 7:26 PM EDT

President Donald Trump signed a budget deal last week that will add another $1.7 trillion to the national debt, according to the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget. Despite promising to wipe out the national debt in eight years during his presidential campaign, the president has added an estimated $4.1 trillion to the country's debt within his first two and a half years in office.
Interest paid on the increasing national debt has surged, already surpassing the total spent all last year.
Net interest paid on the national debt has jumped up nearly $20 billion to $343 billion in the first 10 months of this fiscal year, already surpassing the $325 billion spent all of last year.
For comparison, in 2018, the federal government spent about $375 billion on children under the age of 19, according to the Urban Institute's Kids' Share report.
Projections find that the federal government spends about $1,200 per American on interest.
The president defended his actions on Twitter, claiming that there would be time to cut the budget later, after the 2020 election. "Budget Deal is phenomenal for our Great Military, our Vets, and Jobs, Jobs, Jobs!" he wrote. "Two year deal gets us past the Election. Go for it Republicans, there is always plenty of time to CUT!"

But fiscal hawks warn that time is running out. "This deal ignores our large and growing fiscal imbalances and is a step in the wrong direction for our economy. We're already heading towards trillion dollar annual deficits, so adding more to the debt is the last thing we need," wrote Michael Peterson, CEO of the Peter G. Peterson Foundation.
Maya MacGuineas, president of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, issued a stern warning to politicians on both side of the aisle. "Going forward, neither side can claim a mantle of responsible governing, and few have any moral ground to stand on—this is a bipartisan failure," she wrote of the budget deal. "With the national debt rising to historic levels—soon to overtake the size of our entire economy and beyond—and with our largest programs, Social Security and Medicare, spinning toward insolvency, our nation's answer is to make the problem worse at every turn."

Rush Limbaugh, a conservative shock jock and friend of the president, said last month that debt was no longer a priority for Republicans, and that it never had been. "Nobody is a fiscal conservative anymore," he said on his radio show. "All this talk about concern for the deficit and the budget has been bogus for as long as it's been around."

The OP is lies and nonsense. You cannot know the deficit until all revenues have come in, and people are getting hired every day. And besides, Obama rakes up more DEBT than all presidents before him COMBINED and I don't remember you crying when that happened.
George W Bush and the GOP left the US economy as a smoking ruin and started 2 wars they couldn't finish.

Stable genius Donald Trump is further defecating on the economy by mooting a payroll tax cut.

Again, DEMOCRATS own the House, which means they own SPENDING, they own, the PURSE STRINGS, they own the BUDGET, which means THEY have owned the continuous DEFICIT SPENDING since they won in 2018....

What have they done with it / about it?

Continued to make carrying out Obama's failed coup attempt a high priority, adding millions more in bogus investigations and hundreds of hours of wasted Congressional time in seeking Impeachment off of their butt-hurt & Hate....

Continued facilitation of criminal illegal invasion of the US, preventing existing US law from being carried out, continuing to violate existing federal law by operating federal law-violating Sanctuary Cities, and aiding and abetting crimes committed against US citizens by illegal foreigners they are helping to annex the United States...to include placing the economic cost of in-processing, housing, medical care, feeding, welfare, etc.. all of these criminals on US Middle Class tax payers and adding it to the very deficit they are acting like they care about....

Continuing to plot, promise, and plan to add TRILLIONS of dollars in taxes and additional US debt to reward these illegal criminals with 'free' medical care, education, housing, food, etc....

Continuing to plot, promise, and plan to add TRILLIONS of dollars in taxes and additional US debt to give Americans 'Free' college tuition...

Continuing to plot, promise, and plan to add TRILLIONS of dollars in taxes and additional US debt to upgrade or rebuild every US building in the US to Global Warming standards, eliminate the Internal Combustion engine, and to 'win the war on cow farts'...

If they think any of these 2020 Socialist Democrat platform agenda items will reduce spending / the deficit then It seems the extreme level of TDS / HATRED for the President has overridden the Left's common sense / hypocritical BS meter...
"President Donald Trump signed a budget deal last week that will add another $1.7 trillion to the national debt".

I rest my case.

Dem's block all attempts at reducing spending.
It is always the other sides fault...which is why it always gets worse
Oh those assholes in the GOP are just as guilty of spending like there's no tomorrow, don't get me started on them.
And yet you vote for nothing but the GOP
You vote Democrat, because you are a Gamma. Men vote republicans, at least they know what is correct, while democrats were fighting a war against austerity during Obama's time.
More lies from our resident caveman. I do not vote Dem and I think Obama was the 2nd worst POTUS ever
Behind Trump?
