3. So we're basically AT "full employment" now. There will never be a 0% UE rate.

 

But the interest payments on the debt continue to eat a bigger chunk of the budget every year. Yes, "deficit" & "debt" are two different numbers. But a larger deficit increases the debt.
Ignoring that simply because of the source of the info is pretty stupid. Fine, go get the numbers from the government; they'll tell you the same thing.
I dont see our current growth rate as too slow. Go at the 4% trump PROMISED (and didnt deliver), and you'll get faster inflation growth, which eats away buying & savings power.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
