The fact that it is over a trillion dollars doesn't matter to a left leaning zealot.

    A few of you seem unclear on the concepts of debt and deficit - they are NOT the same thing.

    Gradually decreasing the deficit still is adding to the debt which when interest rates rise is unsustainable

    Nonsense. Quit moving the goal posts.

    It's better than what your two buddies Reagan and Baby Bush did--rapidly increase the deficit.

    A rise in interest rates will only impact the subset of debt that is denominated in Treasury Inflation Protection Securities (TIPS). The interest rates on the remaining debt is fixed. Hence, a rise in interest rates will have zero impact on repayment as long as future deficits continue to trend downward.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Your hopeless. Your so biased that you cheer deficit spending by the GOP but howl like a stuck pig when a Democrat does it at a lower rate.

    Enjoy your uninformed paradigm.

    Hahaha! This dude thinks the sequester is the reason deficits have been precipitously falling for the last three years!

    This is why we can't have nice things.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.
