Why do some people think the US government can borrow to infinity?

What part of WE ARE BROKE is so hard to understand? We pay 7 BILLION a DAY just to service our debt. How long do you think we can sustain that?

  • Well, I think the better question is 'Why does the US Government think it can borrow to infinity?' First Law of Finance. 'If you don;t have it, don't spend it.'

  • Hey...that's almost as much as we pay each day for the wars in Iraq and Afganistan!

  • Some are just stupid while others believe anything the left tells them. Both types do not know how to think for themselves and so rely on anyone that seems to have an appealing answer to their insecurities. Right now, communists like Michael Moore are exhorting people that the government has plenty of money and they should continue to ask for more.

    Michael Moore is not a communist , I don't think you would know one if you saw one Anna .. How would you like it if people called you a fascist ? You can express an opinion without namecalling and being insulting .

    Yes, he is. And she would probably not like it if someone called her a facist because that would be like calling her a progressive.

    What part of you didnt give a chit when a republican was in office which renders you a hypocrit and no one takes you serious do YOU not understand?


    America isn't broke, we are pissing money..did I say we? I meant republicans are pissing money away by giving billions away in tax cuts (see Rick Scott's newest action...and Walker and most other repub gov's) Demanding the extension of the TEMPORARY) Bush tax cuts (SHAME on you ONAMA for allowing that crap) ...


    BTW, we aren't broke when we have the ability to raise the money but refuse too....Americans are just stupid to have bought the voodoo economics of the Reagan years

  • Because the government's mentality is: If it ain't broke fix it 'till it is. And I second the First Law of Finance that anonymous posted.
