Infalting? What is the rate of inflation now? ~3.6%? Just above the average for the last century?
Oh, that's right, I forgot, you actually believe the bogus numbers the US Department of Propaganda puts out!
You have the "real" data? Is it included with a tin foil hat perchance?
Even if that 3.6% is true, which I doubt, on an annual basis, it's damaging. Over a one hundred year period a single dollar would inflate to over $34 with that rate!
So you ignore your "inflating our way out of debt" aspect in favor of whatever this is supposed to mean?
That would ensure that we could not pay the debt .... or even maintain basic services nationwide.
Listen up Wayne, we are never paying off the debt which stands at over $46,000 per every man, woman, and child and over $130,000 for every taxpayer.
Than why worry about the current state and trash the economy now? Just sadistic fun or what?
And you think if we abolished income tax and went with a more fair national sales tax we couldn't maintain basic services?
You mean the more "fair" tax that would exclude businesses from paying it?
Really? Then why trash the economy now to make the show now? I forgot, it was to make a political ploy, sorry.
Who said we should trash the economy?
The more radical GOP factions, including the tea-party groups.
You're the one that keeps making this a political football, not I. I think both parties are to blame for the predicament we find ourselves in.
You can believe whatever you wish, but it is clear which of the two parties was willing to do their job and try to compromise to prevent the default and which took the position that it was their way or the highway.
