This graph explains why America can’t afford ideas like Reparations.
The United States of America is $22 trillion in debt. A significant portion of that debt is owed to China. Democrats from Cory Booker to Elizabeth Warren are talking like America is the endlessly rich country it once was. That once-upon-a-time nation that won every war and led the world’s economy.
Maybe THAT America could have afforded to think about reparations. This one – the America of today – cannot. It has already made future debt-slaves of its grandchildren. THIS America had better get humble fast… think about ways of spending LESS, not stupid fashion statements for spending MORE.
