There is NOTHING Congress, Senators or the President will do while in office that will dramatically reduce our national debt. They can't even balance a budget. Can't even have meaningful cross-party talks. I hate this phrase "kick the can down the road" but that's all that will happen until one day... the bottom falls out... maybe it will be when we are no longer the world's reserve currency... I don't know, but a #$%$ storm has been brewing for years. We simply cannot sustain growing obligations to city, state, federal pensions, hand-outs, unions, subsidizing so much and being the world's police. WE ARE very near or at the tipping point. Best you can do is eliminate all of your/families debt because 3-5 years watch out. In the meantime WFT better get their accounting sorted now or it might be NEVER.
