Trump made the promise to wipe out the debt in 8 years (not the deficit as Washington Post claims).

Remember that Obama took eight years to double the debt form $10 trillion to $20 trillion (100% increase). I have my doubts if Trump can meet his promise. Even keeping the $20 trillion debt from escalating will be difficult.

In big reversal, new Trump budget will give up on longtime Republican goal of eliminating deficit

 

President Trump on Monday will offer a budget plan that falls far short of eliminating the government’s deficit over 10 years, conceding that huge tax cuts and new spending increases make this goal unattainable, three people familiar with the proposal said.

 

I predict a recession is going to come along and make matters worse. Republicans 

exploded the deficit, when the recession comes, and they always do, that explosion will become a mushroom cloud.

 

The solution ........ do i have to say it.

 

We have to cut Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.

 

Long term implications of that will be state budgets will be crushed, people with government benefits or benefits owed to them will have to take a haircut. 


Historically that has always been the litany from the Right, but it really doesn't have to be this way.  Have we been damaged?  You bet we have!!!!  Is it irreversible?  Not yet!  November is just around the corner.  Before it arrives, 'the donald' will move to solidify his grip on power any way that he is able.  Count on it.  It is the job of all thinking, rational people to take charge of the future before he and his sycophants can.  The first order of business is to stop allowing the RRRR get by with crap because we afford them respect.  Liars do not deserve respect for liars do not respect you.  Make sense?  I think so.
