  •  That $22 trillion is bogus (1+ / 0-)

    The current surplus is $2.6 tn and is projected to peak at $3.6 to $4.2 trillion in 2023.

    The clueless right wing hack that unwittingly showed that $22 trillion surplus on TV was using present value calculations of surpluses over the infinite future horizon. Which even if meaningful mostly represents surpluses that won't show up until the 22nd century and after. Basically fairy gold.

    •  Thanks for that fact update Bruce. (1+ / 0-)
