    Trump tax cuts are enrgizing the economy and putting more money into my 401K, savings account and in my wallet.

    Thank you President Trump. Thank you for being a true American patriot who knows the value of keeping one's hard earned cash.

    It's not a revenue problem it's a spending problem.

    Nope, they are already coming in. I got a ton back, again. Nice to those tax cuts and to have more money back to the people who earned it.

    Oh Bucky, bucky.
    We are talking about the deficit. You just showed what the problem is going to be.
    Just remember whatever you buy with that is on the credit card.

    What a ridiculous claim.

    Trump has been President for 792 days, and over that period the Federal Debt has increased by exactly, $2,081,387,828,120.70

    Over Obama's final 792 days, the Federal Debt increased by $2,072,527,750,350.43 in 2018 dollars, a difference that rounds to zero.

    How can it be that "Obama solved the debt problem in his second term" and the same increase in debt is an "EPIC MESS" simply because you refuse to accept the results of the election?

    Can you see why the Left is no longer viewed as credible by the American People?

    Go back and check those figures, Zorro, because they are obviously skewered in the calculation.

    The American people elected a Dem Congress and took six more governorships, and are poised for a sweep next year.

    Speaking of "credibility":

    Trump: I will eliminate U.S. debt in 8 years

    https://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-bo...003-trump-i-will-eliminate-us-debt-in-8-years

    ___________

    Donald Trump?:roflol:

    And, some people actually feel that it is their life's mission to continually defend that MORON?:smh:

    Zorro is accurate, they were checked and rechecked. Sorry to say this but he knows far more on the subject than most and presents facts which is sorely lacking in a lot of posts.

    Obama really screwed Americans over with his entitlements and his food stamp programs. Trump finally has the country moving forward at a record pace. Stop trying to discredit his incredible economic policies and his rightful plans to return money to the American people who earned it. He is going a great job and once he fixes the messes Obama left, his policies will result in a massive decline in the deficit.

    They are dead balls on, link provided. It's important that you get your calculator out and live in a fact based reality rather than a delusion. It is exactly for this reason that we as a nation spend so much on educating you folks, and yet sadly, you do not seem to be capable of comparing 792 days of two presidencies when you have even been provided a link from the US Treasury, dialed into the exact dates and the figures, to the penny.

    How sad is that?

    Now get your calculator, click on the link, and better yourself. You have a very bright future ahead of you!

    I'll step you through it if you get stuck.

    You have skewered what the link is saying.

    Look at how helpless you are. Your claim is a syntax error, you have learned meaningless phrases to repeat when you have nothing else. You can do MUCH BETTER than this. The link "says" nothing. It's merely the US Treasury Report on the Federal Debt, daily, to the penny.

    You have to do this on your own for it to be meaningful and to learn to gather your OWN information that is so freely available in our Representative Republic.

    Trump was sworn in on Jan 19, 2017.
    Today is 3/23/2019.
    Trump has been President for 792 days.
    792 days before Jan 19, 2017 was 11/20/2014
    The link I sent you previously provided you all three dates for the comparison of the debt for each date to the penny!

    Now get your calculator out and get to work. The sense of accomplishment you are about to experience will put a fresh spring in your step, a song in your heart and completely change your outlook on life.

    Now get to it!

    If you get stuck, let me know.

    You have skewered the interpretation of the numbers. Your idol has significantly increased the deficit, when he said he would get rid of it.

    A disconnect exists in Trump right arguments for their idol and finances.

    Well if he is a "moron" what was Obama?

    Over Obama's last 2 years, the Debt to GDP INCREASED from 104.89% to 109.93. (+5.04%)
    Over Trump's first two years, the Debt to GDP has DECREASED from 109.93 to 103.85. (-6.08%)

    Reducing is the first step to eliminating it, and Obama increased it, not only over his entire presidency, but upto and including his final two years.

    Trump's bringing it DOWN, right off the bat, and not only bringing it down over his first two years, but bringing it down MORE in his first two years, than Obama increased it!

    GREAT JOB TRUMP!

    FINALLY we are growing GDP FASTER than the Debt.

    He even used the FBI/DOJ and spied on Trump and couldn't get her elected. I guess he was almost as bad at that as he was getting the economy moving.

    Without impact on Debt, deficit has zero real world impact. A deficit that has zero impact on debt has zero impact, it's nothing more than the meaningless chatter of monkeys, except for it's impact on debt
