I asked economist Alex Nowrasteh a followup question: “And do you see that the only hope of repairing our ratio of 1.7 taxpayers to 1.0 entitlement recipients, which keeps our debt beyond our control, is a massive infusion of new taxpayers through immigration?”
The National Debt Solution, Part 2: Step 5, Importing Taxpayers.
There is a solution. But does anybody really want a solution? A solution requires changing course from what led to the problem. America’s only solution requires turning away from several self destructive but very familiar, comfortable traditions.
And not just The Other Guy’s self destructive but familiar, comfortable traditions.
In the home where rent and debt interest exceeds income, maybe the two children would be old enough to help with the rent, had mom and dad not aborted them. Now, one solution remains: bring in a couple of roommates to share the rent.
But that requires getting along with strangers. Mom and dad couldn’t even get along with their own children. How are they going to get along with strangers?
40 million more full time taxpayers is how many more we would need right now to wipe out that deficit, provided we also eliminate four controversial federal departments. (Otherwise we will need 50 million. See graph in Part 1.)
