Drumpf's idea to cut the national debt is to significantly increase it, if you have ever seen his tax plan.

Re: Trump will reduce the national debt the Trump way, stiff the debtors.


I am not surprised. What will be dumbfounding, though expected, is when his supporters jump on board with this idea. This is so hypocritical. He would state in one sentence that individuals need to be responsible for themselves, earn their own way and not to be dependent on the government. Then he throws this idea out saying that we as a country be dependent on the buyers of our debt, other countries, in essence by using their money to solve our needs, without intent of giving it back if necessary. That we as a country don't need to earn our way, but can expect others to buy it for us.

Re: Trump will reduce the national debt the Trump way, stiff the debtors.

Apparently you just tell the IRS you win and pay no taxes



https://www.donaldjtrump.com/positions/tax-reform

WTF?

The Trump Tax Plan Achieves These Goals


1.If you are single and earn less than $25,000, or married and jointly earn less than $50,000, you will not owe any income tax. That removes nearly 75 million households – over 50% – from the income tax rolls. They get a new one page form to send the IRS saying, “I win,” those who would otherwise owe income taxes will save an average of nearly $1,000 each.


"I win"? Geezuschristonacracker, how much more childish and churlish can this asshole be?

Maybe Canada will bail us out.

Great... so much for economic and monetary policy credibility.

Oh, he is one trustworthy fella, alright. He could give the country a whole new rating. The agencies might want to think about that.

Laughable coming from the welfare supporting crowd....bitching about stiffing people. :lol:
No, this is coming from Trump, but thanks for demonstrating continued ignorance of facts and support of lack of integrity. Just as expected from you.

Re: Trump will reduce the national debt the Trump way, stiff the debtors.

Oh great Donald!?!

Who the heck is going to buy a bond at reasonable rates when they have NO IDEA whether the government will honor them or not?

Like Fenton's excellent point earlier, is he going to stiff the Fed...who owns trillions of dollars in treasuries?

Being POTUS is NOT like running your failed businesses Donald...you cannot just declare bankruptcy every time you screw up.


Who is this clown (Trump - not Fenton)?

Shirt maybe but hockey Jersies are pulled over the heads of opposing players as their heads are beaten.
Canadians are known for being nice untill you put them on skates and hand them a stick.

They're going to have their own debt problems, plus the size of ours is to massive for anyone to really bail out.
