17 Reasons the $17 Trillion Debt Is Still a Big Deal
Liberals think we need to keep spending more and more without a care of ever paying anything back or worrying about bankruptcy.
Check it out:
Remember the debt? That $17 trillion problem? Some in Washington seem to think it’s gone away.
The Washington Post reported that “the national debt is no longer growing out of control.” Lawmakers and liberal inside-the-Beltway organizations are floating the notion that it’s not a high priority any more.
We beg to differ, so we came up with 17 reasons that $17 trillion in debt is still a big, bad deal.
1. $53,769 – Your share of the national debt.
As Washington continues to spend more than it can afford, every American will be on the hook for this massive debt burden.
2. Personal income will be lower.
The skyrocketing debt could cause families to lose up to $11,000 on their income every year. That’s enough to send the kids to a state college or move to a nicer neighborhood.
3. Fewer jobs and lower salaries.
High government spending with no accountability eliminates opportunities for career advancement, paralyzes job creation, and lowers wages and salaries.
