The reason the deficit has ballooned is not because too much money has been spent on providing services to people but rather taxes have been cut way too much and the beneficiaries have been the wealthiest. Budget deficits have mushroomed under 3 republican presidents....Regan, Bush and Trump. In every cases I’ll timed tax cuts in prosperous times led to falling government revenues, more concentration of wealth and ultimately economic instability. When will they ever learn? The tax cuts never came close to paying for themselves with increased economic activity. Each time millions of people are conned into supporting such fiscal and economic nonsense with the promise “just try it again and the results will be different”. Sounds like the definition of the I word. By the way central banks are a necessary part a civilized world .... there are alternatives.
