15 Trillion Dollars in Debt

It has been over 930 days since the Senate Democrats passed a budget. I imagine if Republicans were in charge this would be a larger story.

The silence on the left when it comes to the debt is unbelievable. Their only plan is more taxes and less defense, even though that won’t solve the problem. The real problem is the American people.
