MC Once again, you made it clear what caused us to accumulate 16 trillion in debt -- Republican policies! This is obviously wrong, but you don't care!

I don't give a damn who did what. Can you PLEASE forget about the parties? What caused the debt burden to start to grow in 1981?

I made some suggestions.

Reaganomics

Bush tax cuts

Iraq war

Afghan war

Great Recession

You tell me what I left out. (Or if my suggestions are wrong.)

BTW, we accumulated 14 Trillion dollars in debt since Carter.
