Ae you ready for the hammer to fall on the US?

With the national debt now topping $12 trillion, the White House estimates that the government’s tab for servicing the debt will exceed $700 billion a year in 2019, up from $202 billion this year, even if annual budget deficits shrink drastically. Other forecasters say the figure could be much higher

  • I am sooooo confused.

    I thought OBAMA was not going to add to the nation debt.

    What happened to his BIG talk about Bush running it up? He is doing just as bad or worse in my opinion.

    We are soooo in debt, and yet we can afford to fund the entire populations heathcare.

    I must be slow, I just dont get it.

  • I think it already has. We're the mighty "Roman" empire that crumpled to its knees. I don't believe the U.S. will ever really recover due to it's debts to China. Since the mortgage crash of the early millennium, to me, our country has taken a whole new definition. My eyes are starting to take a new squinty shape.

  • Well Obama did promise to change the country, he didn't explain that the change was to collapse it with massive debt to rebuild it as a marxist country.

    Exactly, I love my country but I have gotten to the point that I don't want to live here any longer.

  • My own personal debt makes my stomach hurt. This is moot. Our country has been in debt longer than most of you have been alive.

  • I am more sick of the citizens than anything else. The uneducated, ignorant, and stupid comments made by people who think they know what they are talking about but really dont. The debt does not bother me because in reality is mostly from people who took out huge mortgages and knew they could never pay them. I blame the banks as well because they loaned the money out. Oh yea the fact that people make fun of a our current president's name even though his parents named him that so he really had no choice. If he changed before running, I am sure you people would complain about that. Also the name Hussien is not bad, only people make it bad.
