comment Does it make any sense to directly contribute to reducing the US national debt?
I think the terms "debt" and "deficit" are getting confused here. Even if the Bush Tax Cuts expired, and the CBO projections held true, there would still be $trillions of debt outstanding. It would take decades before the US became debt free.
