Ok, I just saw that I was reducing the deficit amount by an amount equal to the net income. So that part is working. But, what it means is that I am debt by 2,138,605,700 right now. I reduce this by 38,616 per turn with an approval rate of 78%. If I increase the approval rate, I decrease the amount of net income, as one would expect because you are lowering the tax rate. The population is slowly increaseing and is at 1.56 T people. At this rate of reduction, I would be back in the black in 60,000 turns, roughly. An probably be 150 years old to boot.
