Obamacare is $150 billion in the red this year, $150 billion added to the deficit and debt, even though Obama promised it wouldn't add a dime to either.

Just mint up some $1 trillion coins, and pay everyone off.

It would be better to make it $1 trillion notes. That way you'd only need one wheelbarrow to carry the money to the store for a quart of milk.

Everyone in the whole world accepts gold coins. Women in India use them as head dresses.

We can keep whistling why we ignore this but it will not go away. I am very interested to hear the opinions of both the left and right side of the isle and our future President whom ever that may be once the promises start flowing to win the election.

Couple this with State debt and this is a serious burden we are leaving our grandchildren.

Maybe it is time to bring the boys back home, limit our borders for a bit and control our foreign monetary obligations until we can better serve our citizens and infrastructure here.

How about EVERYONE paying their fare share?
