The New York Times said this about the nation's $14 trillion debt:
"It's all obfuscating nonsense, of course, a scare tactic employed for political ends. A country with a deficit is not necessarily any more broke than a family with a mortgage or a college loan."
Mortgages are a fact of life for most people and one form of debt that can be used wisely. Most mortgages are on property that appreciates. College loans aren't in the same category, but not all together out of the realm of a "helpful" debt. In either case, the wisdom of using debt is connected to appreciation and how fast one can pay it off. Virtually any household with a mortgage or college loan is working diligently to pay it off as all debt is a form of slavery (Proverbs 22:7).
The New York Times really compares our nation's ballooning national debt with a household having a mortgage or college loan? The national debt is growing exponentially, we're not paying it off.
Who reads such a trash publication?
