The debt still matters

Maybe I’m just old fashioned, but the national debt still matters to me.

In my time on this Earth I have seen the national debt balloon from $1 trillion to $6 trillion, to now $22 trillion. And the growth of the national debt doesn’t slow down no matter which party controls the spending. This year it is projected to grow by about $1 trillion, which is the same amount the entire debt was in the 1970s.

The national debt is now over 110 percent of our gross domestic product, a level not seen since World War II.
