also, it's obvious that errors were made. why aren't you as critical of the errors made by climate models?

It's an ongoing process. "The debt" is not just some bank account somewhere to which you mail payments.

I'd love to see the Excel spreadsheet in question. Mr. Herndon says the error was almost immediately discovered.

Coercive theft? Taxes are part and parcel an important of society.

we haven't seen this in at least 20 years. when is the "right" time to enact austerity?

An assertion for which neither evidence nor argument is presented.

The last year the federal debt decreased was 1957.
