Will the U.S. ever be out of Debt?

Con

I accept. My opponent has the burden of proof to show that the U.S. will someday be debt-free. I await his arguments.

FF. The US has only been out of debt once in its entire existence. This was under President Andrew Jackson. (1)

Our national debt is now $17,426,891,428,702 (2) and is growing.

I don't see our debt going away any time soon.
