An anonymous congressman has dropped a bombshell election-year book that confirms why Americans hate their national government and have rallied to anti-establishment presidential candidates like Donald Trump.
The veteran politician lays bare a rotten and corrupt Congress enslaved by lobbyists and interested only in re-election in an anonymous, 65-page manifesto called “The Confessions of Congressman X.”
“Like most of my colleagues, I promise my constituents a lot of stuff I can never deliver,” he admits. “But what the hell? It makes them happy hearing it . . . My main job is to keep my job.”

Sorta slowed down. Up 54 Billion so far in June. Was flat for awhile when income taxes were paid. Now that source of a bump is gone and we are on par to increase approx 60 billion in June.
That is a 720 billion per year pace.
Not slow at all really.
Year to Date the National Debt has increase 1.134 Trillion dollars. 3 months left in fiscal year. Another 180 billion would make FY 2016 rise to be 1.314 Trillion. And no one but Trump is mentioning it. Go figure eh?
