It’s time to bash the wealthy! News media love to tell the common people just how rich the top 1 percent are, letting us know what kind of stuff they own and remind us that most of them contribute to [evil] Republicans.
The age of $1 trillion-plus deficits continue. So far the federal government has overspent, resulting in the need to borrow $292 billion in October and November. We’re on track for a $1.75 trillion deficit for the current fiscal year.

President Jimmy Carter’s last signed and executed fiscal year budget results ended with a $79.0 billion budget deficit, ending during the period of David Stockman’s and Ronald Reagan’s first year in office, on October 1, 1981. The gross federal national debt had just increased to $1.0 trillion during October 1981 ($998 billion on 30 September 1981). By 30 September 1985, four and a half years into the Reagan administration and shortly after Stockman’s resignation from the OMB during August 1985, the gross federal debt was $1.8 trillion. Stockman’s OMB work within the administration during 1981 until August was dedicated to negotiating with the Senate and House about the next fiscal year’s budget, executed later during the autumn of 1985, which resulted in the national debt becoming $2.1 trillion at fiscal year end 30 September 1986 and becoming $2.6 trillion at fiscal year end 30 September 1988.
