    I am not a Democrat. I realize that you were talking to somebody else when you said that.

    The basic premise is because we control the printing press deficits don’t matter so we can run deficits as high as $2 trillion and it won’t hurt us and we can fund everything we need to.

    What is your point.
    I’m not blaming any president for increases in the debit because much is out of their control.
    Your stupid to blame Trump for the debit.
    I’m stating a fact that 9 trillion federal debit during Obama’s 8 years.
    So again your point is what.

    Wrong again you brain dead moron. Democrats have enjoyed wallowing in deficits for decades. The first Congress in 40 years that did not rub one was a Republican congress.

    But alas, you're a clueless idiot on steroids devoid of facts or reality.

    And then President Obama inherited this massive deficit and somehow REDUCED it without any help from the fucking republicunts.

    Wrong again you brain dead moron. That would be Obama and the Democratic Congress he held.

    Wrong again you clueless asshat. But then, when have brain dead morons like you EVER been right.

    Yes, he's going to nearly increase it by half.

    Obama added $10T to it. You cheered him on. The QE and Fed rate fiasco propped up his inept government. Now we are dealing with the consequences of his pathetic leadership.
