    This was created by UMKC grad students and members of the MMT Deficit Owl USA Committee on Facebook. Note: our members now include NC-03 Democrat congressional candidate Marshall Adame.

    Excellent video CBB. Thanks for sharing it. You just need to keep hammering the message home.

    I do believe that many of our elected politicians understand this, but the federal debt has been so effectively stigmatized, they cannot talk outside of the box. The opening segment in the video says it all...an echo chamber of Republicans and Democrats all saying the same thing..all BS.

    So how do you change not only public perception but also get our elected officials to speak more honestly? They all have reputable economists advising them, but they cannot get outside of that echo chamber...that box.

    Got to disconnect the idea that government deficits=Big Government per se.
