Welcome to Even a 7th Grader Can Cut the Deficit
Welcome to my blog. I'm hoping to engage people of all ages and different backgrounds in a realistic discussion about cutting our unsustainable deficit. I feel like this is important so we can stay competitive and not pass on this problem to our children and grandchildren. You probably are wondering why a 7th grader is interested in the deficit. Well, one factor is my autism. This allows me to think differently then most children. Also I like math and the large number $13,000,000,000,000 of total debt fascinates and frightens me at the same time. The first thing I thought is how could anyone spend that much money. What is even more frightening is that 10 of that 13 trillion dollars were spent in the last 10 years.
