Are You Tired of Hearing It?

I know I am. But it seems most of us in the USA may have heard it, but we certainly haven’t listened. That includes, but is not limited to, President Obama, the Senate and Congress.

I promise you, if you have not really heard it yet – you will not believe this. The USA increases it’s debt $58,000 every second of every minute of every hour of every day of every week of every month of every year.

That is not how much we spend every second – that is how much we borrow. That’s right – $58,000 each second.

Don’t believe me? That’s fine, do some research yourself. If you do not know where to start, start here: http://zfacts.com/p/461.html

Do you get it yet? We need to have politicians in office (all of them) who do get it. We need to have Unions, those for public & private sector employees that get it. We need to have people receiving entitlements who get it. Before it’s too late, if it is not already.

    The Debt ‘ticker’ does look great.
    And I really like your point that people should not be afraid to talk about important ideas.

    And dealing with the debt is important.
    But you should try to wrap your mind around two facts (and not be afraid to look hard at them):

    1) Reagan took the debt from its lowest point in about 50 years and doubled it.
    Since then the debt has been almost unstoppable (although Clinton came close),
    and so Reagan and the Bushes have accounted for almost all ($12 Trillion) of the debt.

    2) Last time we ran up the debt this fast it ended the great depression, won WWII,
    and then we paid it down because we had responsible Republicans and Democrats in power.

    This is the story, they don’t want you to know. So this is the story you most need to understand.

    Best,
    Steve

    Thanks Steve. And you are definitely on target with your comments.
    As much as I liked Reagan as President, not everything he did was right for the country. And as much as I disliked our boy Bill, he did do some things right. Your second point is, to me, ultimately the best. The problem (and it’s solution) is not Republican or Democrat in nature. It is all about responsibility and doing what needs to be done.
