Hopefully by electing a new president! That would be a good start...
Make things in America.
Maybe the Germans could pitch some Euros into our beggar’s cup since we were nice enough to rebuild their country after they went insane and elected a dictator. After all, we have much in common in that regard.
Incorrect. “Making more things” does not reduce government debt. Spending less money does.
We disagree then.
well the Germans could always pay us back for WW 2, that might help
I know, I’ve been trying to point out the error in your reasoning for some time.
Government can spend less than what is once has already spent?
Never heard of such a concept.
Then you’ve never heard of the government spending money it does not have.
Maybe someone could "clue in" 0bama and the dims.
two words mr. Finance Minister: mirrors.
Actually, the Pubbies haven’t exactly reined in the spending this time around. You’d think they could “just say no” to all the funding. They do have the purse strings, yes? Or am I not properly nuanced to understand it all?
Not to be a jerk, but perhaps closing all the bases in Germany might be a start towards tackling the debt. Oh I bet Germany would change their tune quickly if that was brought up after that story. We immediately closed every base in Puerto Rico after that complained and now they are regretting the decision especially the people in Roosey Roads.
You think they’re NOT “clued in”?
This is part of the plan to bring America down to the level of every other country in the world, and destroying its financial status is the main part of that.
Maybe someone could “clue in” 0bama and the dims.
lol. The Republicans spent like crazy during their majorities in the early 2000’s. They are absolutely no better.
If destroying the economy is the goal, then they’re succeeding! If this can be proven, then we need to bring out the guillotines and have some public executions for TREASON!

The sky is blue. Grass is green. Obama is a communist muzzie.
Too many of those that would be responsible for proving it stand to gain in the short term and on the other side.
The best we can do is to emulate what they’re doing - physical commodities - whilst they crash the dollar.
There’ll be no proving it before it happens because your average sheep simply doesn’t want to believe that they’re doing it on purpose.
