"Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget"

I am not sure if I should laugh or cry. Responsible Federal Budget has been missing since 1957, the last year the United States had s General Budget Surplus. Every single year since the National Debt has increased.

From 1790 when the National Debt was $71,060,508.50 to 1957 when the debt was $270,527,171,896.43, the annual rate of growth in the National Debt after two world wars was 5.1%

From 1957 to 2017 when the national debt was $20,467,375,664,755.30 the annual rate of growth in the National Debt was 7.5%

Since 2000 the annual rate of growth in the National Debt has been 7.8%

It is obvious that there is no responsibility. The "wants" of people have torn the country apart. Representatives have not done what is best for the country, but what was best to get re-elected. They buy votes using taxpayer money: healthcare, tax reform, education, and more.

Generally a responsible bank allows an individual to borrow three times their income when issuing mortgages. The United States has given itself ten times its general revenue income.

Responsibility is the wrong word to use.
