We as a nation have compiled a mountain of debt of over $11,000,000,000,000. According to the US Census Bureau there are 306,162,496 people in the United States (www.census.gov). If the national debt was $11,000,000,000,000, that would be $35,928.63 per person. As I said above, the national debt is OVER $11,000,000,000,000 the debt is OVER $$35,928.63 per person. My child who was born in October was born in debt, because she and the others in her generation will have the responsibly to pay this tremendous debt we have acquired. Is this right? Aren’t we supposed to leave an inheritance for our children, not a giant pile of debt? We can turn this around, by changing our ways. When we a mass a mountain of personal debt, we start spending within our means, pay down the debt, and never spend above what we can afford again. The same is true for our national debt. Let’s send a message to our government, “Put an end to deficit spending.” It is time for our nation to balance its budget.
