    the debt at this point, though I don't think we should ignore it when the economy heats up. Did you see Krugman's excellent piece on its relative unimportance the other day?

    Climate change, rebuilding our infrastructure, doing the various jobs of governance that were abandoned under Bush, all imo are much more pressing than paying down the debt.

    And (also imo), we should do this with new taxes on finance and the wealthy....the ones that stole and continue to steal the money from the 99%.
