And 1/2 the debt was gained in the last 8 years. Clinton and Bush really slapped the American (and world) with a huge problem. Is spending $$$$ like this the answer?

Obama's budget was ammendded by Congress.

And it is under adjustment by Trump.

That's how things work.

Whilst you are entitled to your opinion, you have to agree your title for the OP is stated as fact.

Perhaps you may wish to edit your title, so as not to clickbait your fellow Trump fans into believing more unsubstantiated claims.

You had the right figures but attributed them to the wrong person.

Personally I prefer the truth for better or worse, I don't appreciate being misled (my opinion)

The title is from the story, not my title.

Click on the link and take a look, stop misleading the readers of the thread.

Apologies, I thought the title was yours.

Though perhaps you could do a little more fact checking before posting, so as to avoid others from having to read inaccurate information, if the OP had stated the budget relates to Obama's rather than Trump's there wouldn't be a problem...other than the OP becomes a complete non starter.

Of course that is just my opinion.

What about Trump's federal hiring freeze for new hires and position filling?

Whenever a State government goes over budget, that's how they get back into the black.

There are many things that changed the second Trump won the election. I suspect the dept heads all had a collective oh sh moment. They now know that there is going to be some financial discipline.

If Hillary won we would not be having this conversation.

Yes, that is just crazy! But it will never stop before people realize that money is just paper! and have no real value...
But how to fix this? I dont know, but inflation is a big problem, money should be worth something real, like a piece of gold..

What iam really wondering, is this, WHO owns all that debt? I know people are gonna say china etc. but the fact is, that there is almost no countries that doesnt owe money, only one i can think of, is North Korea...

List of countries by external debt - wiki

I thought Norway was debtfree aswell, but they are on that list

All that money the world own too somebody (banks) could really be used to do something usefull for the world - offcourse, its only numbers on a screen, and not real at all - The workforce, the resources, the knowledge etc is all very real, just cant put it into work, because we dont have the right numbers on our screens... Its a broken system, and it needs to be fixed..

So true,

The amount of waste is staggering. I'm guessing a lot of people don't want their books being audited and are no longer spending money like rock stars.

Why would anybody do that? The debt is being reduced because people just feel better. And that's thanks to Trump, not Obama.

But that's just my "opinion."

Except the military and defense contractors - because they need more submarines in the deserts of the Middle East.

Agreed, I laugh when people say silver is not a good backer for currency. One 1964 quarter is worth $3.50.

We should have $5 $10 and $20 silver in coins. And of course have it backed by silver in vaults. Is this even possible?

Central banks, the Fed and fractional reserve lending is designed to enslave people.

Oh come on. In ANY financial system there is a lag. Whatever is happening now in every single large financial system IN THE WORLD is due to whatever decisions have be made in the preceding 6 to 12 months.

Come back a year from now and then you'll see the result of any Trump policies.
