Presidential candidates run from national debt
The Brockton Enterprise - 05/27/2016
There have been few signs that the three remaining presidential candidates seeking to capture the nation’s commanding heights are willing to confront the subject of America’s public debt, which has grown to over $19 trillion, more than the gross domestic product. It is estimated that by 2023, entitlement payments, military spending, and interest on the debt will consume 100 percent of tax revenues.
All three have behaved like they know less than zilch about the subject. Assuming the final match-up is Hillary Clinton versus Donald Trump, you get to choose from two disliked candidates who give egomaniacs a bad name. All in all, this match-up is not a battle of good against evil. It is a choice between bad and less bad.
