While Dems were dreaming of Trump impeach pie - he was reducing our debt

Rate this topic

38 posts in this topic

The Democrats should keep dreaming of slicing up Trump for an impeach pie with faux cream, because in the course of a few short months as President, Trump has not only slowed the progress of our indebtedness, he has actually started to reduce it.

Follows snapshots from none other than the United States Treasury, of course our MSM could never raise themselves from their mud wallow to report this, it just wouldn't fit their narrative, now would it?

What policy do you attribute to this decline?

It has been slowing and going down fro some time now but if you want to believe it is because of trump...............cool.

Really? Calling BS on your statement.

On November 8th 2016 the debt was $19,806,239,858,606.00, On January 20, 2017 - the debt was $19, 947, 304,555,212.49

This means in just 6 weeks, Obama rotted another 140 billion of US taxpayer money, money that we had to borrow, mortgaging our childrens and their childrens future.

Presidents don't spend (or borrow) money...  Congress does.  

Again... Can you point to a policy that you can attribute to this decline?

While the left likes to paint pretty pictures of the effect of their policies on debt.

Here is the less than savory stark reality from the US Treasury site.

Funny.  This is exactly what you are doing...  Except without a policy.  You are implying that Trump, just being president, has lowered the debt.  How savory.

Some people actually on the left are inclined to show the negative effects of neo-liberal policies

To be fair, that's not the metric that has been applied for the past 25+ years.

One example would be deregulation of banks leading to the crash; then bailing them out which ensures the increase of wealth inequality as tax payer money is used to reinflate asset prices helping to enable those at the top to continue to extract wealth from the economy through their "unearned" income (classical economics) which neo liberal economic theory conveniently redefines as earned.

Another would be trade policies which seek to further empower corporate interests to define governance.
