    Republicans love debt.
    That’s because the people that the Republicans work for, the oligarchs whether American or Chinese, own all that dept.

    The Treasury Department pays the holders (owners) of our $20 trillion dollar national debt interest each year.
    The interest paid each year by the tax payers amounts to hundreds of billions dollars.
