they took in 2.3 T in taxes
they spent 3.4 T
That's the US government.
Now how sustainable is that?
They can't even slow it down and haven't really gotten into the $72 T in entitlements.
And they don't deal with reality, like the Giant Sucking sound called "free trade"
Too many people do nothing and get a check in the mail, it's not productive. The government is blind to reality that's going to bite their faces off before its all over.
We are Greece, what's different besides the Euro. At least they realize austerity comes at some point.
