If Congress fails to come up with a plan to solve the debt problem and the US economy tanks will this not be handing
Binladen a victory. Has everyone forgot that this was his goal when he declared war on the US.to bring down your economy

Unfortunately, the only answer is to inrcaese savings, build our current account balance and stop exporting $2B a day to terrorists. Yes, there will be pain. Too f-ing bad. It's only the beginning of a long cycle, so buckle up. There is no country in the history of mankind that has printed their way to prosperity. We will not be the 1st.Nobody is entitled to anything; a house, a hummer, exotic vacations, etc.. You earn it. Going forward, consumption will be fueled by savings. Get used to it and prepare. Pay down debt and start saving.
