All it takes is some elementary arithmetic to keep the "czar" quiet... \:D/
I have a months end deadline to complete which involves plenty of math that you probably wouldn't understand anyways.

Some of us actually work for a living.

You're certainly an expert on sounding stupid so you'd be the go to guy.

Does everybody notice how NOBODY wants to talk about fixing our $20+ Trillion debt!

It's always, "In ten years, it will drop", sorta crap!

Notice that ten years NEVER gets here and our Nat'l Debt keeps going up!

I guess nobody cares about our future generations and the mess WE are leaving them.....

Exactly. Right now the economy is strong and we should be saving for when its not, or at least paying down debt.....instead the jackasses are talking about a tax cut to run the debt up even faster.

I'm all for tax cuts, but show me a budget surplus first.

Makes sense to me. But don't count on the republicans for that.

You guys are forgetting that Trump promises with massive tax cuts, economic activity will EXPLODE!

Trump would never promise on something he can't deliver....

I give Reagan a bit of a pass as his spending and pushing the Soviets to keep up while working with the Saudis to drive down oil prices collapsed the Soviet Union......which should have allowed us to cut way back and repay the debt....should have but instead prople like Cheney saw it as an opening to bleed the country dry.

I agree, too many big government Republicans in office. Tax cuts will work if combined with budget cuts. Trump had massive budget cuts in his proposed budget from earlier this year. The proposed cuts were all met with horror from both sides. To establishment Democrats and Republicans cutting one penny from mother government is a cut too big.

It sure worked for Kansas! :roll:

As in "I would gladly pay you on tuesday for a hamberger today". That thinking has never worked.....austerity on the other hand always works to get debt under control.

Rump's proposed cuts didn't make any sense and didn't seem to be part of any cohesive plan of any kind....and if I'm not mistaken where all eaten by proposed increases in defense spending. It wasn't a real plan as far as I could see.
