USA Government Deficit

Our deficit is reaching unsustainable levels and needs to be addressed.  Trump tax cuts are incredibly bad policy especially given the almost certain near term recession.

Recessions

The last recession ended in June 2008, and the last three durations between recessions has been 7 years and 8 months, 10 years and 6 years and 1 month. 

As of Oct 2017, we are at 9 years and 3 months, we are due!!!!

War on Terror Costs by Year

We spent nearly $1.7 Trillion an Iraq and Afghanistan which added to our debt plus the lives lost and wounded.
