cnbc article

I saw this today on cnbc.com and had to share. Kinda cool to see this on a mainstream website. We are $17 trillion bones in debt and are not even attempting to pay it down. We just budget for more and more debt and pray for a miracle (I guess is the strategy). There are no major industrial-scale threats in the world right now, yet we spend not just like its WWIII but like we are fighting some freakin war of the worlds against like Mars and Pluto (had to give a shout out to Pluto who rarely gets even a mention since losing her planet status). This chart offers some perspective.
