    False: US debt stands at 103% of GDP. This means that only France and Spain have a lower GDP to debt ratio than the US while Greece, Ireland Italy and Portugal all have higher ratios. In fact 10 states have worse debt ratios than the US. The debt problem is huge and real. However, there is no reason to paint it in hyperbolic and misleading terms. http://www.imf.org/external/p...

    I heard today that on January 1,2013,that the US will receive a tax hike of 39.6. the highest in history,and I read that if this tax hike takes place,This country is finished..
    This tax hike was proposed by the democratic party ,and is a across the board tax hike,for every American.

    Someone needs to scare the pants off of all of us. Everybody needs to know that the current path is unsustainable and that the crash will effect us all. Fiscal conservative economics is needed to help repair the problem but not one person is willing to say that because they would never get re-elected. People love something for nothing too much.
