No amount of money we put into a lockbox will EVER go to paying down debt.
Lockbox? Our government does not and never has put a dime in any lockbox! All of the money our government collects in taxes is spent long before it gets it!
To be fair I've been making this same argument for years.
And you've been wrong for years if you believe that our government ever
had a lockbox! Our government spends about $2 for every $1 it collects in taxes.
