    why do we have a multi trillion dollar debt

    Is it because we haven't taxed enough

    Government waste

    What is the answer

    Don't answer like robots, holding allegiance to your silly political party that doesn't care about you

    Why does almost everyone live in debt? Most people can't afford to buy a house all cash. Same W a car.

    The only truely bipartisan activity in DC is wasting taxpayer money.

    Tax revenues hit new records every year, but spending goes even higher.

    I believe in the idea of a constitutional amendment that if Congress passes a budget that creates debt, they dont get paid.

    Both parties fucking suck.

    To me that's much more understandable. (House mortgage). The average price for a house compared to the average salary fits the debt. But yeah way too much credit card/vehicle etc etc debt

    Both

    If the American public knew how much of their money went to "American interests" as opposed to the American people there would be a revolution in this country the likes of which has never been seen.

    I feel like we might see a revolution in the coming years or decades. So much information that they used to be able to hide is now being hacked and released. The political parties act like they despise each other in public, meanwhile behind closed doors they shake hands and keep us divided.

    They want polarization of party lines because it keeps people from rising up to the government as a collective. They all have become much too comfortable. People should not fear their government, the government should fear their citizens.

    paul krugman, nobel winning economist, explains why debt is good, and how the magic money machine works.:jj:

    the problem is, krugman's magic money machine shits the bed when gdp growth stalls.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2015/08/21/opinion/paul-krugman-debt-is-good-for-the-economy.html


    the real question is, why are interest rates being forced to artificially low levels?

    here's a hint, right now servicing the us debt accounts for 6% of the budget, what happens if interest rates go up?
