  1. What about the other $230 trillion in potential debt(s)?
    Assuming that the old people keep demanding their welfare [social security, medicare, medicaid]
    That is un-payable, so we-as a country should not even try. To try is the complete destroy the future of anyone under age 20, to provide for those over age 70.

    • Social Security & Medicare are not welfare programs; people who receive those benefits worked and paid for those benefits.

  2. The US should declare bankruptcy just like any reasonably intelligent failed business owners would do. But the bankers would never allow that to happen. But the US should do it anyway. Then the bankers would gut the US economy and collapse the government altogether. Which would probably be a good thing. Look what happened in Iceland; they took the control of the country away from the bankers, went through a few years of really hard times, recovered, and now their economy is flourishing. Thinking about it reminds me of the quote: “Anarchy is better than no government at all.”
