DB2: However, those are moot points. Whichever way we got there we have 16 of them and we are on track to add another one this year. Here is a graph prepared by the White House Office of Management & Budget that shows publicly held debt going to 'infinity and beyond':

So it doesn't trouble you at all that several of those trillions were wasted to no good purpose, giving those with very high incomes huge tax cuts, killing or causing the premature deaths of hundreds of thousands of mostly non-US people, and now that we need to spend money to save tens of thousands of US people mostly substantially impoverished by the financial crash, you think we need to take a serious look at our priorities and cut back on the spending?

That after the usual meaningless cliche about 'leaving it to ones descendants to pay it all back'.

Hmmmm. Can't you find a board like RedState or RECF where your wisdom is an asset?
