Since the Covid19 Pandemic Crisis began in January 2020
The US national debt reached 120.5 percent of the nation’s annual economic output, breaking a record set in 1946 for the highest debt level in the history of the United States. The previous extreme of 118.4 percent stemmed from World War II, the deadliest and most widespread conflict in world history. Certainly the debt issue cannot all be blamed on the Covid19 pandemic, but it has taken any discussion of cutting spending off the table.
After the Trump 2017 Tax Cut, federal tax collections increased by an all-time high of $17 trillion over the previous year. That was the result of rapidly increasing employment and business growth, all of which has been reversed by the Pandemic economic contraction.
In less than six months, the US has seen all of its economic progress return to Obama era stagnation. However there is still a lot of institutional confidence in America's economic resilience, so Wall Street remains strong.
Two positive things about the Covid19 pandemic is that it has devastated both the Islamic Jihad and the Columbian Drug Cartels, and our country elected Donald Trump in 2016.
