    US runs $209B deficit in November

    As a fiscal conservative, I cared that Obama's deficits were sky high, but slightly more pleased to watch the yearly deficit drop as his presidency continued. But now Trump has blown it up, and this next fiscal year is on track to be even worse.

    Case in point: U.S. runs $209 billion November budget deficit, Treasury says - MarketWatch

    For first two months of year, federal deficit up 12% on last year, total shortfall forecast at more than $1 trillion this fiscal year

    So...we already know Democrats love spending our money, yet that seems to not line up with how Clinton and Obama lowered the deficit year after year while Trump and past Republicans blew it up.

    What gives? Will the Tea Party hit the streets soon, or will that happen only if a Democrat wins the WH in 2020?
    Unless a good Libertarian candidate emerges, I can support a moderate Dem. Biden, Klobuchar, or Mayor Pete. If it's Bernie, I will abstain. I bet I'm not alone.

    How much is increased debt service from higher interest rates? It was up over $120 BB from 2016 - 2019.
