National debt hits new milestone, topping $22 trillion

US national debt has topped $22 trillion for the first time. The Treasury Department showed Tuesday that total outstanding public debt stands at $22.01 trillion. It stood at $19.95 trillion when President Trump took office. The debt figure has been accelerating since the passage of Trump’s $1.5 trillion tax cut in December 2017.

I wonder how long, if ever, it will take for Folks to realize that political divisions aren’t the real problem. The REAL PROBLEM is the Fed and their central bank branches around the world. The last Central Bank installation - Libya The next Central Bank installation- Venezuela Central Banks rule the world. Do you know?

Ending the wars would save a good chunk. Maybe take half the military budget to do work here to make it great again? Then again Boston dynamics is getting closer to terminators that we would save on soldiers salaries so there's that dystopia to look forward to.
