The Wall Of Debt

Advertisement

Editor:

Our national debt has become an incomprehensible amount of money.

Even prior to the “debt deal,” if you stacked dollar bills, flat, end-to-end, around the world at the equator; in order to have an amount equal to our debt, it would make a wall 20 feet tall all the way around the world.

If we borrowed no more money and had to pay no interest; and we paid off our debt one dollar per second, it would take over 450,000 years.

Yet, what is our answer?

We print more dollars, borrow more money and continue spending with trillion dollar (plus) deficit budgets.

Already, the new deal has added one more foot to the wall of debt.
