Whose National Debt? . . Better Look Before You Vote
( Especially if you're under 30. )
Is our present debt from World War II, when it was the biggest ever?
Then our national debt shot up by (the equivalent of) $10.5 Trillion
That put millions to work, ended the Great Depression and
But look at how fast we paid it down, Republicans and Democrats alike,
... disaster struck.
In 1981 Reagan's supply siders said they would fix the debt, but look above! They wrecked decades of progress in just a few years.
So they're still blaming Congress. But ...
Congressional budgets averaged $2B Less than Reagan asked for.
So you can't blame any of the $3,414 Billion ($3.4T) debt on Congress.
But don't we have to pay interest on that supply-side debt?
Almost too amazing to believe!
$12 Trillion of our $13.5T debt is Republican.
But 17 years of compound interest on top of $3.4T comes to $8.2 Trillion.
Without that interest, Clinton would have almost paid off the WWII debt!
The supply-siders are back with the Republican Pledge.
They've made the debt worse 20 out of 20 years (Reagan & 2 Bushes).
Don't Vote for Supply Siders if You Care about Our Future!
