Pay off the debt in 10 years, What are you smokin?
A trillion dollars is 1 million million dollars. Huge amount.
No way in hell it can be payed back in 10. They might tell you we wont have deficit spending in 10 years, but by that time we are sunk.
I'll be blunt, when the takers outnumber the makers and the government caters to that majority....YEP, Greece.
That's why republics stand and democracies collapse.
The "Takers" have been stripped of spending power by the "makers" though right to work laws, union busting John Birch Society indentured servitude mentality of the Devoes, Koch's, Walten's Oil companies etc
The economy sucks because the people who actually do the work have been royally screwed. Capitalism will be the cause of our republic to fail.In classical economics demand must outweigh supply in order to grow. If the people who actually buy products can't afford them, demand falls. When companies like Bain steal all of the cash and strip the workers of pensions and jobs demand has to fall. Look at the largest employer in the country, WalMart, they pay below cost of living wages, won't allow employees to work more than 33 hrs a week, or provide any benefits to those that aren't management. That pushes their employees to seek government assistance for food and medical expenses.In the meantime the corporate executives and the Walton's make millions in pay and bonuses.
Why anyone making less than $50,000 a year, which is 85% of Repuglican voters support that type of inequality is beyond me.
