I’ve been harping on about the debt for ages. No one cares about it until they can wield it as a partisan weapon, though. Republicans cared deeply about it when Obama was in office, then a whole bunch of them suddenly stopped caring after Trump took over and continued running up the debt. It’s really quite frustrating. It gets almost no attention these days even though we are throwing away billions of dollars in interest that we could be spending on education, border security, conservation, NASA, and so on and so forth.
