I seem to be the only person in my family even slightly concerned about the U.S. debt.
The United States owes $16 trillion to the federal government, American investors, future retirees and other countries to pay our national bills. How is this not more of a concern to our government and our citizens?
It seems as though Greece was the first country that started to go bankrupt. This seemed to have a negative effect on many countries in Europe. To keep Greece from going bankrupt, other countries gave Greece financial aid with certain conditions.
Neither Greece nor other European countries have near the warring capabilities of the United States. Isn’t it possible that U.S. defense capabilities might just be the advantage that our country has for any country to call in their loan from the United States? Think about it.
