  Conservative politicians feed on this ignorance to dupe working class people into voting against their interests (ie, conservative parties engaging in reverse Robin Hood policies).

That's not always true, Cyber.  Republicans have stopped talking about the deficit for some reason and the Tea Party is strangely silent.

In serious news, I agree that people are woefully uninformed about debt, deficit and so on.  I feel that we are currently paying for infrastructure with our deficit which is ok by me.  That said, we can probably afford to hike taxes a little bit and improve our services, ie. INVEST in our services.
