He didn't explain the effect of government borrowing from itself. It’s around 40% of all US debt.

He also did not mention the 40 billion Dollars a year we GIVE to Israel and they lend it out (at interest) back to our citizens!

He also didn't mention how maintaining huge debt levels produces a approximate $500 billion per year trade deficit, for the last 40 years. Austerity in the USA is the only way forward whether they like it or not.
