    Yep I know but a great quote from a socialist DEMOCRAT is still a great quote. However as a war time president he was light years ahead of Obama, Clinton and President Pedo. His other politics mostly sucked but a B+ for his leadership in WWII.

    Which is exactly what the DEMOCRATS are trying to do. Printed money buys votes as well as real money.

    To be fair, Republicans controlled the House and Senate during Trump's first 2 years. The federal deficit grew in those 2 years. The truth is that there is a lot of talk about cutting the budget in Washington, but when the rubber meets the road, neither party wants to take the heat for it.

    Debt isn’t necessarily a problem. Rate of debt growth vs rate if GDP growth is the better indicator year to year.

    Ideally, you don’t want excess surplus or even a surplus for that matter if you can maintain growth as growth is real value.

    However, the problem is where is the debt spent? Social programs or investment? Social programs don’t add to GDP. It adds to inflation. So if you are going to increase debt and rate of debt growth, you want it on investments that generate real GDP.

    Expanding social spending via debt = inflation.
