The main cause of our national debt: Free trade
By Roger Simmermaker
Want to get rid of our burgeoning national debt? Then get rid of free trade and the resulting trade deficits that created it.
The main reason our nation is nearly $20 trillion in debt is not due to entitlements like Social Security. It’s not military spending. It’s not Medicaid or Medicare. It’s not dedication to education. It’s our free trade policies that displace American workers and ship jobs overseas to workers in foreign countries who pay no taxes to America.
