$8,314,529,850,339.07 Debt

Debt increase or $70,612.91 Per Household.

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.

Perhaps we can have this country's corporations start paying their fair share in taxes and wages instead of offloading all the responsibility onto the government.

Is this the be all fix all solution? Seems we have a very dumb and corrupt government to accept special interest groups influence and in some cases out right writing legislation for the weasels unless you are saying that our elected officials alone dreamed up giving corporate welfare out like candy?

This is why I am a firm believer we do not have a Representative government anymore. Both sides screwed the citizen and continue to do so with such contempt.

So you see the Citizens United decision to be as disastrous to our political system as I do ?

One solution for the super massive government debt. Make Federal Reserve Notes illegal just like FDR made Gold and Gold Notes, not for legal tender. Everyone has to turn in their Federal Reserve Notes for a new and improved currency at 50C on the dollar with the result being umpteen trillions in the Federal coffers. Problem solved for Uncle Sugar.

That does give a whole new meaning to closing the borders doesn't it?

My plan is to tax all Wall St. transactions at 1 cent per transaction, and dedicate that money only for debt payment.

Lets find out just how serious the debt whiners are.

You know, the ones that never mentioned debt until Bush left office.

And now it's a major priority.

Thanks from Camelot

Explain how your graph states the Bush tax cuts caused debt when Bush had record tax revenues?
