Our trade deficit with China rose to $29.1 billion in September, up from $28.7 billion in August. This is the second-highest trade deficit ever with China.

The terrible trade deficit is where our jobs and the economy went. Trade i sour real deficit! But the trade deficit is ignored because it makes a few elites wealthy at the expense of the rest of us. Even as this huge trade deficit drains jobs and money, our elites whip up fear over the budget deficit, using that fear to herd politicians toward a “grand bargain” that cuts taxes on the wealthy and corporations while cutting the things We, the People do for each other.
