I didn't miss that point. You missed the point. I have explained this countless times. Future expenditures for the every department of government will be paid too. That doesn't make future anticipated government spending debt. First, that isn't the case. The only people who want to expand Social Security and Medicare benefits are Republicans and there are only two of them in the race and there are at least 3 Republicans in the race. Two, it depends on how and what they do to Medicare and Social Security and how they fund it and if they can it through congress. And most importantly, and has been explained many times, those SS Trust Fund bonds are IOUs from the government to the government. The creditor is the US government and the debtor is the US government. It's an accounting artifact. Social Security Trust Fund bonds are not debt. It's like you loaning yourself a thousand dollars, because you took money out of your car repair budget and put it into your home repair budget. It's not debt. You just really have a difficult time wrapping your mind around the fact that if you loan yourself money, where you are both the creditor and also the debtor, it isn't debt.
