We are $17 Trillion in debt and growing at an astronicsl rate & in about 5+ years at $25 Trillion & will be effectively bankrupt. At just 5% interest the interest on it will be $1.25 Trillion, at 10% it will be $2.5 Trillion, and if what the fed is doing w
e could well be at 20% it will be $5 Trillion in interest. Now how much do we take in? About $2.8 trillion. Need I say more. No money for Defense, nothing for Social Security, nothing for medicare, and the poor can forget about getting any more fee handouts!
