Stockman: Careful, Donald. They Rigged A Debt Bomb for March 15th by Craig Wilson
ollowing the surprising shock of a Trump election victory, economist and best selling author David Stockman joined Fox Business to discuss what is to come in the first 100 days of the Trump administration. He expanded his analysis on the Federal Reserve policy, the U.S national debt bomb waiting to happen and why the market is running on a fool’s errand of hope.
When asked what happens what happens when the new and incoming administration begins to pay off the national debt he responded, “There is a $20 trillion dollar ticking time bomb called the debt ceiling right in front of us, that will happen in March. The new Trump administration is going to inherit that mess. I call it a stink bomb left from last October when Boehner and Obama made that deal. For the new president it is going to consume the first 100 days trying to get that thing through. Republicans are not going to want to vote for a $20 trillion debt ceiling.”
David Stockman is a former Reagan administration official having worked as the director of the Office of Management and Budget.

“The market was giddy on the view that Washington is coming to the rescue with a huge new fiscal stimulus and infrastructure plan. That is dead wrong. The news flash is that Washington is out of business. The imperial city is in smoking ruins. It will not function, confrontation, brinksmanship. That means we will hit the next recession with nothing to break the fall. The Fed is out of dry powder and Washington will be paralyzed.”
