    The interest rate is likely to rise each time an attempt to pay the debt is made. Those to whom the government are paying are on to a good thing and are unlikely to permit it to stop.

    Bill Clinton did it (balanced our budget with a surplus), so I believe others can too-but not Romney.

    Good question. He might make a dent in it but, to clear this debt out would take serious reductions that I don't think the Whiners of America will allow. We have become such a nation of women that we want things done but will cry when it is.

    People are wrong when they believe that just because Romney has money, they will all be drinking that free bubble up, and eating that rainbow Stew.......

    Bill Clinton had a balanced budget.

    It's doable, and it doesn't matter if POTUS is a Democrat or Republican.

    not really,that was a sham and two months out of office the deemocrats were heckeling Bush about the debt when it was Clintons' debt and Bush had done nothing to change it

    Oh, really? So, Clinton didn't balance the budget?

    Funny, those areas in the graph seem to show a surplus during Bill's later years. I must be reading them up-side down . . . .

    Bill Clinton balanced the budget

    And you're right, the Dems really had a field day with Dubya. So much so, that when I hear the Raunchy Right go after Barry, I don't feel sorry for him, he's just getting it back from the other side.

    The US government has trillions of dollars in territories, such as Guam, Virgin Islands and Guantanamo in addition to material, resources and stockpiled military equipment that can be used to pay off government debt.

    The debt does not have to be paid off in cash.

    do you think we will sell Guam or the virgin Islaans?????

    No need to sell, just hand them over.

    Easy.

    No, it took many years to get here and it will take many years to get out of this mess. What Romney can do is start to stem the bleeding. Government and national spend has to be brought under control before the debit can start to come down.

    Given the fact that interest on our many trillions in debt is more than all of the gold reserves in Ft Knox are worth it is never going to happen. We are nothing more than the little dutch boy with his finger in the dam trying to hold back the flood.

    It is a couple of trillion dollars. One trillion seconds ago, all of North America was covered in ice... I think it's past the point of no return.

    Even if he cut all programs that are currently funded without raising taxes it would take over 20 years to pay off the debt. If he cut military spending and raised taxes on everyone in addition to cutting programs he may have a chance to bring it back to center but even then it will not be paid down. Bill Clinton was the only President in the last three decades that actually reduced the deficit but it did not get red of it even then.

    The national debt will only be reduced by reducing spending by the government.
    That will take some hard choices from citizens, and some careful listening to
    the plans of the candidates. One can not judge the candidate by campaign rhetoric
    or lies he tells about the opposition.
