Why you should care about the budget deficit

…very few people in Washington actually care about the federal government’s budget deficit.

That is why you should care about the budget deficit.

The quotation by the way is from Evan Soltas, though I am not sure he endorses my conclusion.

This is not true of Evan’s piece, but often when I read someone write “no one cares about the budget deficit” I mentally sub in: “I don’t care about the budget deficit, but I don’t have a responsible argument for that view, so I will instead write that others also have very high discount rates.”
