Most government debt per person



Good, I think they should do more for the American people.

This Country doesn't need another 18 trillion in debt, that's for damn sure.

Do more means spend more and we know that spending does not help people in the long run and hurts everybody else to boot.

Over $22 trillion has been spent to ameliorate poverty. It has not worked.

Personally, I wouldn't care if Bernie's plans cost 100 trillion dollars. At least he makes me feel he cares about the American people and not the corporations.


Great, so feelings now dictate who should be elected instead of reality , sounds like Trump follower logic......

Were screwed

Wasn't that the same sentiment 7 years ago?

Ron Pauls tax plan would finally start to pay off the debt, and reduce the size of gov to manageable levels, all while increasing the income Americans actually get to keep resulting in a boom........

Im with Rand

Not one can "do all this". Free college, free healthcare, free whatever, it's unrealistic and unattainable.



That is not necessarily true. What we have to do is take the steps towards these things and not a sudden, instant implementation. These are the ideas that Bernie speaks about, but have we forgotten that it must be ran-through congress as well? Bernie cannot do these thing son his own. The representatives of the people have their say as well.

I believe these sorts of policies will be implemented gradually over time and it's a small part of what we can do in this country to benefit the people, not the current machine.

$2 Trillion dollars...

...which is approximately equal to what the US spent on Social Security, Medicare, and social welfare in 2014, alone.

Those are Ron Paul's ideas, not Rand's. Rand is the one whom sold his father out in the last presidential election to endorse Romney. Remember that?

Not that I entirely like the idea of doubling the debt, but many people who complain about our debt being too high don't get the full picture. The debt number by itself is really useless. It's more important to look at a country's debt to GDP ratio.

...only if we're using the word special in the politically correct fashion as it relates to Corky from Life Goes On.

That's the only thing I have been getting at this entire time. If anyone looks through my posting history they will see that I have never voted, because I don't trust any of them. It's easy to get on this website and say someone is a dumb*** because of what they feel, but rarely states a solution. Thanks for your input.

I must admit that was probably the biggest lulz moment of that election.

A few lonely bumper stickers out there.

If you included the unfunded liabilities of 127 trillion coming due over the next couple decades. I believe each taxpayer owes 1.1 million dollars. It's the ugly no one wants to address and why all these 4 year solution based politicians are a failure including everyone currently running and yes Bernie too.

I would find it rather hillarious if everyone got a 1.1 million dollar bilii in their mailboxes. Might wake up and see we have issues with only one possible end result if we don't get off these 4 year proposals. I assume as long as the tv and cell phone work and we have alcohol and drugs in abundance. No one will care until it's too late.

Edit: I believe the 1.1 million is unfunded liabilities only so add that to what's owed for debt to get each taxpayers bill...But someone feel free to verify.

How broken is that eh?

I suppose they forget to mention that they just keep borrowing out of the fund too and placing cute little IOU's in there.

The problem with those social services, is only people who receive a paycheck are actually paying into the fund. The wealth, and I don't mean just the 1% aren't paying into social services they will enjoy ( but not need) after retirement.

Funny how Mike Huckabee was the only GOP member to point that out and although I don't really like his solution ( a 10% flat luxury tax) I can see why it's an issue.
