@W10K3C10 @DarrellHSorey  Isn't making up numbers fun?  That's total nonsense.  At the very most, you could mean that the cost of "dependency programs" (???) over some unstated period of time is equal to 57% of the national debt (now?  some other time?).


If you added up the costs of corporate tax loopholes over say, 10 years, what % of the national debt would that be?


Total cost (total, not the nonsense figures they hand out for public consumption; include military pay, disability pay, death benefits, medical care for returning vets, etc.) of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan would be what % of the national debt?


The lost tax revenue from lower earnings by workers due to globalization, combined with the increased cost of programs to keep those workers from becoming homeless and starving would equal what % of the national debt?


The lost tax revenue attributable to lowering the marginal income tax rates, combined with the lower tax rate on capital gains, would equal what % of the national debt?


Want me to make up some numbers for each of those?
