    How can America eliminate its massive trade deficit?

    If trade deficits are good for a country, why is it that everyone else wants a trade surplus? Why is it okay for China and Mexico to have trade barriers but not America? Why does Trump oppose foreign outsourcing but his and his daughter's own products are made abroad? Thanks!

    Kudlow claims rising deficit is coming down

    The deficit is falling! It is! It has to be, because otherwise it would mean that, well, the tax cuts as rocket fuel for the economy would be a failure, and that this president has the speeding addiction of every previous administration, and that the GOP no longer gives a shit about spending...

    The GOP is throwing away the last vestige of credibility it has on the deficit

    Republicans, take note and really you should be concerned. Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan are putting their gravitas behind a $200 billion 2-year budget deal that is basically 100 percent red ink. They are doing this after a tax overhaul that is forecast to balloon the deficit...

    Yeah, Sure... The Tea Party Was ALL ABOUT The Deficit

    Yeah, I know, the Tea Party came about right after Obama came on the scene. Yeah, they carried racist signs and chanted about impeaching the usurper. Yeah, they held up photos of Obama as Hitler. Yeah, they warned he was going to grab our guns and enslave white people. But, they INSISTED...

    Senate Republicans admit they don't give a damn about the deficit, or accountability,

    And there you go, folks. Republicans could care less about checks and balances. All they want is to have their cake and eat it too. That is despicable especially at a time when transparency is key to their being seen as elevating to a higher degree of responsibility and concern for the issues...

    TOP ECONOMISTS sure Trump tax cut will BALLOON the deficit (well, only 94% sure)
