The subject of this thread is debt and where it came from.


Debt comes from spending more than you have. It's not really a complex theory. If you bring in X and spent 2X, you will have debt.

I showed all the new spending programs and the dramatic increase in entitlements which can not be funded, even if we taxed the $250,000 and above crowd at 90%.

Look at ObamaKare, when it passed the CBO estimated the cost would be $900Billion. So Obama and Democrats in Congress funded it at $ forward two years and the new cost is listed at $2.7Trillion. Well there's an extra $1.8Trillion nobody accounted for. And that works for every program Republican or Democrat.

We have a debt because we spent too much.

We don't have revenue problem, we have a spending problem.
