I know we're supposed to be running a deficit. I've seen different projections for the year from just above $400 billion to nearly $500 billion. However we've also got over $18 trillion in debt. Which isn't a good thing exactly, but it means we've essentially got a hidden income source because of inflation. We seem to generally be running a little below 3% inflation, and so we're essentially obliterating around $500 billion in debt. So in the end those should about balance out, i.e. our number of dollars of debt grows, but the inflation adjust value of our debt is about the same, so the budget is effectively balanced. Thoughts?
