The government is paying almost 0% interest

Tell me again why debt is so bad when it is almost free?

It's complicated. If you're old, don't worry about it. If you're young, consider moving to another planet as soon as it's possible.

Sure R1. Don't you see that debt hysteria is just Republican bullshit, more misdirection from the rich?

Yes. I see that now, R2.

Here's the real deal, OP. We have recently discovered that "deficits don't matter," because the Dollar is the world reserve currency, and WE CAN PRINT IT. Wooo-hooo.

They use up more sick and vacation time. This is another savings companies could have.

They get complacent and contribute less and less in reality.

So it's good to have a changing workforce not a long term one. In today's world that is
