So I do not know what “Core Math” is. However I have seen it as the butt of a few jokes. So I will just toss out what I think the core of the country’s math problem is. Let’s just say we have one third of a billion people in this country. Additionally our national debt is twenty trillion dollars. Admittedly round numbers, but close. That comes out to a staggering sixty thousand dollars of debt per person. Compare that with the debt of other nations.
