National "Debt" is Over 21 Trillion Dollars

How bout that US debt, eh? And that’s not even counting the 30+ trillion dollars “lost” since 9/11. It’s like we’re so rich, money just appears out of thin air! :sunglasses:

Republicans don’t care anymore. There are no more Tea Party rallies, no more “national debt crushing us”. No more weekly Hannity threads proclaiming how the President is destroying America with its debt. They got their wish, a Republican in office, so they are happy.

Most “Trump conservatives” are too busy defending Rosanne Barr’s racial comment to care.

Actual conservatives care, but their numbers are too small to really amount to anything.

More than that, the one significant piece of legislation Republicans have managed to pass into law is exploding the deficit and debt.

This has been one of my biggest areas of disappointment by a fully controlled government in the hands of the GOP. They no longer talk about reducing the debt or the deficit. They don’t even give lip service any longer to reducing our out of control spending. A balanced budget is never mentioned by them, let alone addressed. Trumpism is well on its way to fully replacing conservatism. It’s a tragic joke.

Its almost like they spent years complaining about everything, and once they assumed power, they all looked at each other and said “Now what?”

Agreed. They are the dog chasing the car, who has finally caught it, and are lost on what to do next. Most of them have just proven themselves to be little more than hypocrites and liars.

It’s been proven that neither side gives two ■■■■■ about the debt being stacked on us plebeians.

So… now what? lol :thinking:

Dems just bash reps, if they try to reduce the debt. Dems need to lead on the debt. Like Nixon to china.

If Republicans believe in it and that it’s the best for the country why would they give a crap or need the Dems for anything? Republicans are in power. They’ve gained power over the years claiming to want to do things. Now th at they have the power…Dems need to take charge? What?

So its the Dems fault that a Republican house, a Republican senate, and a Republican President signed a bill into law that increased the debt with their latest “tax cut”?

Why is it that Republicans seem to NEVER accept the blame? Its ALWAYS someone else’s fault.

Yeah, nobody cares. It’s what happens when government is looked upon to solve any little problem any person has. It’s what happens when government becomes the answer to everything. No politician is interested in suicide because they gored the electorate’s ox, so really, by extension, aren’t we all the problem? Complain all you want about the politicians, but who put them there?

That’s only about 170 billion a year, if I remember correctly.

The modern GOP was never ever fiscally conservative. Nothing more than a myth they’ve managed to convince themselves and their base is true.

Amazing how the party of personal responsibility is literally incapable of ever taking any.

My favorite of course, being, “It’s all a big club, and guess what? You ain’t in it!” lol

Dems don’t seem to mind programs that contribute to the debt. Tax rates are a min max curve, so too much taxation actually lowers collection rates. So, it’s not black and white as to whether the tax cuts contribute to the debt.
