Wall Street shrugs at Washington’s debt pileup Wall Street doesn't care about the debt...most people don't...and either party doesn't care when THEY are in control. It's just a wedge issue...spin it to make your opposition hurt. Really, the thing that take care of the debt is making the ship run better. Money is made...taxes taken in, the bills get paid over time. Right now, isn't a time to retreat or restrict...we're in a war, VS a plague. People AND businesses are hurting. And statisticians say every dollar WELL spent comes back in the long run 10 fold. But this doesn't mean corrupt handouts to those not truly in need...People AND especially business. y'gotta keep track of it. A target water spout...not an uncontrolled fire hose. Ignore the bullshit, do what's right.
