2019 Deficit to Exceed $1 Trillion

Postby Bambi Buster » Mon Jul 15, 2019 7:03 pm

"The White House projects that the federal deficit will surpass $1 trillion this year, the only time in the nation's history the deficit has exceeded that level excluding the 4-year period following the Great Recession. "The 2019 deficit has been revised to a projected $1.0 trillion," the White House Office of Management and Budget wrote in its mid-year review. As a candidate, President Trump had promised to not only wipe out the deficit, but the entire federal debt, which has surpassed $22 trillion...…."

I used to worry about this and the debt. But The American PEOPLE showed me they didn't care about it at all in the last Govt shut down.

25% of the Govt was shut down for a "few weeks" and to a lot of people it was the end of the world, they said so on here and everywhere they were in the coffee houses, ball games, everywhere. Most of those were conservatives who happened to be working for the govt or jobs depended on the govt. If ever those are going to get pissed off that bad over just a few weeks closing there's no way what needs to be done to fix the mess will ever happen. The American PEOPLE will never allow it.

Yes but this is BB's chance to take as shot at the Donald, for promising to eliminate it. That was a stupid promise as he really has no control over it and like WC said, if folks get mad and act like it is the end of the world when the govt. shuts down for a few weeks, how will we ever make the cuts to the govt. that we need to make to erase the deficit and decrease the national debt????

So are you saying that the last shutdown was because someone/anyone was concerned with the deficit?
I’m pretty sure it was shutdown because the President wanted more money for the wall.

I do agree with you that it is concerning that people do not have an emergency fund, and they cannot cover a months bills.

Do I did not. You need to read what I posted.

Look at the last govt shut down. 25% of the govt shut down for a few weeks and some people lost their minds.


To get the deficit AND the debt down where it needs to be we will have to close 50% of the govt for a few YEARS. The INTEREST on the national debt alone is already taking up a large part of the budget, in a few short years MORE THAN HALF the yearly budget. No way we can keep it up.

Seeing how much of a howl the American people put up over 25% of the govt being closed for just a few weeks shows that they will NEVER do what is required to bring them all down.

Understand this, "cutting back" means CLOSING certain parts of govt. It also means raising taxes ON EVERYBODY across the board. Companies WILL start cutting way back by firing people by the millions to pay the taxes.
