For as long as we are shipping US jobs to China and buying a bunch of imports, we will run a deficit and our children will be suffering.
Bring back US jobs, and stop importing everything.
Doesn’t work that way, sorry. We can have a trade deficit, and our government can still spend money it doesn’t have.
In FY 2007, the budget deficit was $160 billion, while the trade deficit in 2007 was $696 billion
The FY 2012 budget deficit was $1086 billion while the 2012 trade deficit was $540 billion.
Is that the relationship you felt they should have?
