United States Debt: Big Deal?
While the Republican Party disintegrates before our eyes, their “message” continues to focus on how much we owe, (and they fill their committee chairman seats with White Men--exclusively!) Sure, it’s a lot nicer to have a surplus than it is a debt but:
If you could borrow as much money as you want (let’s say on a 5-year fixed rate) at 0.7% (yes, that’s ZERO POINT SEVEN) do you think it might be a good idea to fix that damn roof, and invest in the kid’s college while you can do it?
I would. (Maybe my little cutie will marry Bill Gates grandson and buy me new villa in Palm Beach!)
