    Therefore, the Federal government doesn't have any real debt at all - where do Walker and Peterson talk about that?

    Over the last 4 years, the Federal Reserve has "printed" trillions of dollars of new money, yet interest rates on 10-year Treasury Bonds and the rate of inflation are BOTH under 2% and lower than they were during the 4 budget surplus years of the Clinton Administration.  Where do these Cons talk about that?

    We need to massively increase the deficit right now to grow the economy and increase jobs.  That is what high school kids should be taught.
