People get ready, there’s a debt train coming. 

The U.S. is set to sell $26 billion of 2028 notes Wednesday, the largest auction of 10-year Treasuries ever and eclipsing the previous record of $25 billion, first set in 2009. The sale follows last week’s quarterly refunding announcement, which saw the Treasury once again amp up issuance plans to finance the widening federal budget deficit.

The average maturity of Treasury debt is only around 70 months, so most debt auctions are less than 10 years.

The time has come today to stop the massive Federal spending and debt issuance. Before this happens.
