Middle class will pay for growing federal deficit

Did you know the federal deficit increased this year? It is currently running over half a trillion dollars but Republicans who spent eight years hammering President Obama about deficits have suddenly become silent. Their tax bill will add even more to the debt but that does not seem to be a concern. I wonder who is going to pay for this debt when the day of reckoning arrives? This might be a clue: The individual tax cuts that might help some middle class families expire while some changes that tend to benefit wealthier Americans are permanent.
