I read an article today called "The U.S. National Debt and How It Got So Big" by Kimberly Amadeo and this was showing how the US debt was becoming such a big issue. Predictions show that by about 2020 the US debt will be around 23.1 trillion dollars of debt (from 13 Trillion and Counting) as of 3:26:11 the debt is $12,377,549,228,897 and counting. (National Debt Clock) which means we own that much money to mainly the Chinese since they are our main source of borrowing. This is not making China happy. This is a problem that has crept up on us and it must soon be fixed. If it is not fixed soon, we will be in a bigger problem than we already are. Over the course of 1 minute (3:27:55) the debt is now $12,377,554,968,596. That is an extra $5,739,699. This means we go more than $1,000 in debt every second, adding up to more than 1 Million dollars every minute. This numbers must be changed.
