This is why we are in debt: these guys and their buddies.
And just be glad I'm not asking you to substantiate the conspiracy theories. I'll let them go for this thread because they are an irrelevant diversion, but feel free to start a thread discussing the validity (or lack thereof) of these conspiracy theories.
edit: my facts are off just slightly and since facts are important to me, I'll correct myself: our social security debt is "only" $12.7 trillion, however, there is $30 trillion in medicare debt. Total democrat-debt: $42.7 trillion.
