Are you turning fiscally conservative? Great!
We do need to figure out our National priorities in regards to what we can afford. We can't do everything want to do with the money we have.
We can either bicker with each other from both sides Of the aisle and get nothing accomplished or we can have an actual discussion of what priorities should be in regards to our budget.
The deficit was projected to grow in the years following the Obama Administration. Trump's tax cuts definitely don't help the deficits as less money will be collected. So we have to determine what's most important as a Nation.
What's your number one budget priority Southern Guardian? Where's your place we will cut the budget?
It's time both parties take a centerist approach to the budget. I would have wished for more Democrats involvement with the new Tax Plan but that didn't work out on either side.

So how is this going to get fixed? If we had leadership that could show concern and commitment equally across party lines, then we could accept a leader asking all Americans to do their part in getting out of debt. If the feds could prove they won't spend our money like it's endless, I would take part of my 401K to pay my portion of the debt. If everyone, including politicians did that, our kids would get a fare shake.

At some stage the debt has to be paid, their is only one way to do it. That is to print it away.
Jerome Hayden Powell (born February 4, 1953) is an American former investment banker, who is the current Chair of the Federal Reserve. He was nominated to the position by President Donald Trump, and confirmed by the United States Senate.
Powell indicated the forecast for rate hikes this year might increase when the policy making Federal Open Market Committee meets on March 20 and 21.

Yeah where is the Tea party? Oh that's right, they were lying, they only Protested because the President was black.
There is no future point when all the debt needs paid.
