That's per person in the United States. Per working stiff, its more like 15k.
Congress is about to vote on another 2 trillion in spending and raise the debt ceiling. It will cost every one of you 6k plus interest. It has to pass. Defaulting on China just isn't an option. Nor is cutting the shit out of entitlement programs. That gets politicians un elected.
But guess what. You bastards are all gonna get un elected anyway.
Time and time again, I have talked about personal courage. Our politicians simply don't have personal courage. It takes courage to tell citizens we have to cut SS or Medicare. Or abandon war efforts. These pussies just can't do that. It is political suicide and takes courage. They don't have any.
Want proof? Read this quote, snipped from the article.
We don't have a choice," said , D-Tenn. "We are on an unsustainable march toward a fiscal Armageddon."
Of course you have a choice knucklehead. You always have a choice. They just both happen to suck. One takes courage, the other is the coward's way. We know which one you will take.
It's like asking pigs to sing. It's not do-able. We should all quit working. Period. A nationwide strike. That would shut it down. But since that ain't gonna happen, sharpen up your pencils and send in your checks. And unlike your credit card debt, you can't pay this debt off early and avoid the interest.
