I’m not talking about actually paying off the debt, since you just revealed you have no clue what you are talking about, and just spew out whatever right wing propaganda you heard that day, let me explain further.
I’m talking about raising taxes on the top marginal rate, but not so much that it STOPS growth. Shift spending to areas that not only create jobs, but put money back into the economy, and not just the stock market. That’s going to take moving past ideologies. That’s going to take admitting the same old dreary ideology you keep raking up from the 80’s that will never work, lowers the GDP and not the debt ratio. That means adhering to the Laffer Curve and NOT raising taxes too much, and raising them at a slow rate over a time period to adjust to growth. That means cutting military spending and pumping money into education, like it or not, as much as we can. That means NOT cutting social programs as they pump money into the economy, but cutting down qualifications.
You’re right, we can never pay back the sovereign debt, and that’s not a huge issue, until now. Because in 2018 we cut into the threshold of 75% debt ratio, the first time in history. And our economic growth, besides what your comrades will tell you, is NOT keeping up with the debt ratio, and in fact is growing at a much slower pace than the rest of the world. But it is expanding and we need to tighten the belt now, start raising the top marginal rate, make SMART changes to our spending, and curb unsustained growth we have now that is wildy all over the place. One day it’s up, next day it’s down significantly, that is the preamble of a crash we probably can’t come back from and the US will lose all trade leverage and become a second rate country.
