In an annual news cycle New Years is the time for "old news" - "Nothing to see here. Move on, folks!" What would you nominate to be stories of the year and even longer?
I nominate for Fake News of the Decade: "Terrible National Debt Must be Repaid by Us or Our Kids!"
Republicans maintain Americans are like a family. An endlessly increasing National Debt when revenue is limited requires cutting general welfare programs.
For a True News Backgrounder, add: "Government Creates and Issues all Money; Can simply Create More. Temporary Inflation isn't Fatal! Democrats Fail, over whole Decade, to Educate Americans, to Refute this Republican Propaganda."
Learn the truth about government issued money. Read Modern Money Theory (book by L. Randall Wray.)
