All national debt is relative when you look around the world and some countries debt is truly eye watering but other countries don’t seem to get their knickers in a twist as much as our politicians do. When the Republicans are running the USA the national debt is barely mentioned, soon as they get voted out they start saying the country can’t afford Democrat policies, yet Trump increased the USA national debt by $4 Trillion dollars during his term, which he described as the most successful period in US history ( bullshit we know but his party backed him ). Countries will never pay off their national debt and that includes us so we need a plan to pay our way better by growing the economy with investment not by cutting the lifelines of the less well off. Sure it’s a balance but debt shouldn’t be used as a stick to beat certain sections of the population, particularly the ones who saved thousands of lives and genuinely help people in need.
