You goof. You point to Germany as an example to envy?
You believe they are wonderful with their socialist economy, but they are in dire financial straits. Their income tax rates go up to 45% and they pay a national added value tax (Mehrvertsteuer) of 19%.
And their debt load is worse than hours. That's what I was showing you with the debt clock. You were supposed to look at Germany, France, Greece, etc and compare their debt loads to the US.
I guess I didn't explain it to you clearly enough.
