If you're not, maybe you should be... Here are a few economic stats which I find particularly disturbing. Do you find any of them particularly concerning? On the last day of 2010, our national debt was $13,871,130,353,817.40. If we paid off this debt at one dollar per second it would take around 450,000 years to pay off. As of the 3rd of January, 2011, our national unfunded liabilities (debt for Social Security, Medicare, etc.) is over $111,900,000,000,000.00. We're not slowing down... today, the U.S. government is taking out more loans at a rate of around $2,630,000 per minute. In 1980 the U.S. national debt was 907 billion dollars. Today, it's 1400% higher! According to the U.S. Treasury our national debt is expected to reach 19.6 trillion dollars by 2015. The INTEREST payments alone on our debt are expected to be over $900,000,000 per year by the year 2019. The 111th Congress added more to the U.S. National Debt than the first one hundred congresses COMBINED. The debt they added works out to around $10,429.64 for each of the 308,745,538 people counted by the 2010 U.S. census. Our government is already borrowing 41 cents of every dollar it spends. Which government programs/expenditures would you be willing to give up in order to turn this ship around? Clearly we're on an unsustainable course so 'none of them' or just a few small changes won't cut it. What would I do?
