Sooner or later the US is going to default. Assuming 50 million actual taxpayers in the country, the current national debt works out to $340,000 per taxpayer, and that is without considering future interest. The real number is well over $1,000,000 after interest.
Given that there is no way to pay that back, it is a foregone conclusion that the US will go into default sometime in the not too distant future.
Thank you Barry for doubling the national debt – while demoralizing the country. At least you managed to wreck the coal industry in the process.
