Now Americans should know what the Democrat Party is about. Theft until you can no longer fund it any more. Than they all act surprised, "stunned" I should say. This is standard operating procedures for the "Chicago Model" of Democrat politics. This has been an inside job since the people who are owed the debt are directly linked or are the same people who gave the money out in the first place. (and they were not the taxpayers.)
You now have Rahm Emmanual trying to sound like a Republican by denying evrything that has happened financially and becoming a fiscal conservative. This is all a scam that he learned at the knees of Bill Clinton and Barak Obama. Not to mention his original mentor: Chicago's own Mayor Daley, whose brother now runs the White House.
By the way most of the money is owed to people and organizations that have not been productive nor have added to the national wealth. They only knew the right people. Even the robber barons left something for the rest of us. The Democrat party most of the time does not even claim to do that while it is pick-pocketing the taxpayer.
