Deficit

By Emma Gillespie, Ola Szymanska, and Sam Roushanei

how did this problem develop
How Did This Problem Develop?

Deficit is money the United States Government

owes to other countries. The budget has two

important sides: spending, and revenue, which is

where the money comes from. The two sides need to be

equal in order to have enough money. In the United States

of America, deficit increased when we started our

current wars with Afghanistan and Iraq. The

reason this happened was because we needed

more money to pay for the costs of war and so we

borrowed money from other countries.

what makes this issue so important
What makes this issue so important?

The reason that this is so important is that our debt is

currently $14,110,984,937,197.07. That’s a lot of money

and it will be hard for America to pay it off. Also, debt

will accumulate over time and our deficit will increase.

Economy is all about money, so obviously this has a

tremendous impact on our economy. Every country has

debt and deficit problems however ours are really out of

control. We need to lower our deficit and use that

money for other important things, such as healthcare.

  • If this problem continues, there will most likely be higher taxes for our generation. Self made millionaire James White says “We are the next generation of leaders and taxpayers. If someone doesn’t reach out and explain the disaster we are headed for, America’s financial future will come crumbling down like a house of cards.” The amount of deficit will increase and our economy will plunder. When the economy is low, we need to have deficit in order for the economy to go up. However, after the economy goes up, we need to pay back deficit instead of doing nothing.

Democrat John Kerry vs. Republican George Bush – John Kerry accused George Bush of

taking the American government in the wrong economic direction (“Only George W. Bush

could celebrate over a record budget deficit of $422 billion, a loss of 1.6 million jobs and

Medicare premiums that are up be a record 17 percent.” “W stands for wrong-the wrong

direction for America.”-John Kerry

Dick Cheney to the Treasury Secretary Paul O’Neill – “Deficits don’t matter.”
