It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”

    Musta been Paul Ryan, right?
    Didnt obama say that?

    I 'hear' that as well. But I suspect watching the debt continue to climb to the point where we face a finanical collapse will be worse. Its not about fair...its about dealing with the problem. Massive cuts...the poor are going to have to pay their fair share. Significant tax increases...the wealthy are going to have to pay MORE than their fair share. Major modifications to the fed and business climate to bring back industry. Its not going to be fixed by party sloganeering and appeals to interest groups.

    In part because the post is wrong. This is not all money we have spent already. Much of it is money the government wants to continue spending. Such as continueing the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya. We are under no financial obligation to continue that.

Of those that will not, a discussion on future payments and negotiations on a lower payment or extended time frame of those payments possibly with a higher interest rate. See... Obama voted against the debt ceiling and now he's leading the charge to raise it. What doesn't make sense is his position - he seemed to have flip-flopped, however I agree with his position when he was in the Senate. It's irresponsible for us to continue to raise the debt ceiling. We need to keep it where it is, pay our bills and negotiate the others ... the thought that some cataclysm will occur Aug 2nd is fiction.
    why cant we just go bankrup?
