Friday Quote of the Day

“World War II is always held up as an example of running the national debt over 100%, but no one remembers that we drove it down below 70% within 6 years by the end of the Truman Administration.” Citation

The United States Government hasn’t even balanced a budget in six years, never mind brought down the debt. And before the later Clinton years, it’s been decades.
