The CBO has published a new report indicating that, assuming fairly optimistic projections for economic growth and tax receipts, the National Debt will increase from $17 Trillion to $27 Trillion in the next ten years.
If you ask the President and his party how they intend to deal with the country’s impending fiscal catastrophe, they have a simple answer for you: “War on Women! Racist Republicans! Koch Brothers!”
If you ask the “opposition” party how they intend to deal with fiscal oblivion, they have an answer, too: “We’re very concerned about the debt and deficit. Now, let’s talk about immigration reform.” (Gotta get Jeb Bush’s gardener out of the shadows.)
And this is why we’re boned.
