How about the interest on the debt coming to $5000 per person? Forbes is one of the most respected financial magazines of our time, and when you see that they are saying, you have to wonder how long does this country have. If they don’t get a clue in DC, your children (not grandchildren) will either be living in a different country, or they will be slaves to the rest of the world. The opening paragraph I will quote here:

Early last week the administration unveiled its new $3.8 trillion budget. This budget, and the spending it assumes, is so reckless it is difficult to fathom. It projects a deficit of $1.6 trillion for fiscal 2010, with an explosion of publicly traded government debt to $18.5 trillion by 2020. Debt service is projected to reach $912 billion a year by 2020, or over $5,000 for every working person in America.

I encourage you to go to the site in the link above and read the whole thing (what else can you do today with all this snow). It will help depress you and make you want to throw the bum out.
