6. Absolutely. Spread it around. Huffpo's Jason Linkins, among others, often posts this CBPP chart.

3. Every damn time a Dem is on TV they should have this chart, or one like it,
to keep hammering home where the real problem lies. The Bush tax cuts, instead of helping our economy, is one of the drivers that has plunged us into this abyss.

There should also be a chart showing how much revenue we would be receiving (and how that would help ease the debt) if the corporations were paying taxes.

9. I wonder what it would look like if we hadn't doubled defense spending during the past decade.
Iraq and Afghanistan notwithstanding.

12. So why don't the Democrats just propose cutting all of it
It would balance the budget.

13. How can 'Economic Downturn' hurt in 2018, economy is recovering?
The chart doesn't make sense. An economic downturn now, should not impact projected deficits in 2018,
they would impact the current deficits and debt, but not future deficitis unless we are still in
an economic downturn for then next 7 years.
