27 Facts About American Government Debt

27 Facts About American Government DebtThe US government has stolen $ 15.876.457.645.132,66 from future generations of Americans, and we add to this more than a hundred million dollars daily. This 15 trillionth pawl over the past 30 years has been the cause of the highest standard of living the world has ever known. However, this amazing prosperity we enjoyed was fake. It is not present. We lived beyond our means for so long that we no longer understood what “normal” activity was. But every debt addict once runs into a wall, and the same will happen to us as a state soon. At some point, under the weight of our national debt, our financial system will collapse, and this bankruptcy will hit every American. With the current system, there is no mathematical possibility of paying debt. We are on our way either to default or to hyperinflation. We have accumulated the biggest debt in stories of the world, and if the next generations of Americans appear, they will look back and curse us for what we have done. We like to think of ourselves that we are wiser than previous generations of Americans, but in fact we were so stupid as to be beyond words.

Whenever I write an article on the public debt, Democrats leave comments with accusations against Republicans, and Republicans leave comments with accusations against Democrats.

What does this mean?

Both sides are guilty. Both receive an unsatisfactory rating.

If the Republicans really wanted to prevent the federal government from accumulating this debt, they would have done so.

If the Democrats really wanted to prevent the federal government from accumulating this debt, they would have done so.

Therefore, we will not pretend that the “hero” of this drama is one of the political parties.

For the damage caused, both sides will go down in history as having allowed the greatest carelessness in financial matters during this period of American history.

Unfortunately, neither side shows any signs of change in its line.

Neither Barack Obama nor Mitt Romney promise to eliminate the federal budget deficit in 2013. Both of them talk about how the federal budget will “someday” be balanced, but we have seen many times in the past that this “someday” never comes.

I did not intend to make this article completely political, but the truth is that the national debt threatens to destroy everything created by previous generations, and our politicians still offer nothing but justifications.

Next up are the 27 things that every American should know about government debt ...

№1 It took more than two hundred years for America’s national debt to reach 1 trillion dollars. In 1986, the US national debt reached 2 trillions of dollars. In 2005, the national debt was equal to 4 trillions of dollars. In 2005, the US national debt has doubled to reach 8 trillions of dollars. Now the national debt is close to the 16-trillion mark. How much can such exponential growth continue?

#2 If the average interest rate on US government debt rises to just 7 percent, then the US government will spend over a trillion a year just to pay interest on the national debt.

#3 If you start spending one dollar every second right now, in order to spend one trillion dollars, you need 31 for a thousand years.

#4 Since Barack Obama joined the White House, the US national debt has increased on average by more than $ 64000 per each taxpayer.

#5 Barack Obama will be the first president with an annual deficit of over a trillion dollars in each year of his first 4-year reign.

#6 If you lived at the time when Jesus Christ was born and spent a million dollars every day from the day he was born, today you would not spend one trillion dollars yet.

#7 Since the Republicans gained control of the House of Representatives, the US national debt has grown by 1,6 trillion dollars. So far, this Congress has added more to the national debt than the first 97 Congresses combined.

#8 During the administration of the Obama administration, the US government has accumulated more new debts than during the time that George Washington began the presidency until the beginning of the Bill Clinton presidency.

#9 If Bill Gates gives all his fortune to the US government, it will close the US budget deficit for just 15 days.

№10 As Bill Whittle showed, if you take every cent that every American earns in excess of $ 250000, this amount will close only 38 percent of the federal budget.

#11 Today the ratio of government debt to GDP in the United States is much higher than 100 percent.

№12 According to the forecast made in the recently revised directive document of the Navy “Analysis of the US financial imbalance with regard to generations. Who will pay and how? ”, By 2050, the US government debt will be 400 percent of GDP.

No.13 The US government debt per capita is already greater than in Greece, Portugal, Italy, Ireland and Spain.

No.14 At the moment, the US government is responsible for more than a third of the government’s debts around the world.

#15 The amount of US debt in the hands of foreigners is about 5 more than a decade ago.

#16 The US national debt is now more than 22 times as large as it was at the time Jimmy Carter took office.

#17 According to forecasts, the US national debt will exceed 23 trillion dollars in 2015 year.

#18 Mandatory government spending exceeded for the first time the total federal income in the 2011 fiscal year. It was assumed that this could not happen earlier than 50 years.

#19 Between 2007 and 2010 over the years, US GDP grew by only 4,26%, while US national debt increased by 61% over the same period.

#20 The US government has 2,7 trillion dollars in total assets, and 17,5 has trillion dollars in total liabilities. These commitments do not include 4,7 trillions of existing domestic debt.

№21 American families now actually receive more money from the US government than they pay the government in taxes.

#22 The US government spends money on the most stupid things imaginable. For example, in 2011, the National Institutes of Health spent $ 592597 on research to find out once and for all why chimpanzees throw poop.

#23 If the federal government used GAAP accounting standards as public companies do, the real budget deficit for the last year would be 5 trillions of dollars, not 1,3 trillions of dollars.

#24 Over the course of 2011, the Federal Reserve acquired about 61 percent of all US government Treasury bills.

№25 At the moment, the US government debt is more than 5000 times more than it was at the time of the creation of the Federal Reserve.

#26 If the federal government starts paying the US state debt at a rate of one dollar per second right now, it will take 480 thousands of years to fully pay off the national debt.

No.27 The official government debt figures are nothing compared to the huge unsecured obligations that the US government will face in the coming years. According to Professor Lawrence J. Kotlikoff, the US government will receive a budget deficit of 200 trillions of dollars in the near future.

As the US economy continues to collapse, more and more Americans are becoming financially dependent on the federal government.

For example, food stamp spending has doubled since 2008. Millions of Americans who have lost their jobs need government assistance. Since Obama became president, the number of Americans receiving food stamps has grown from 32 million to 46 million.

But the Obama administration believes that a much larger number of Americans can be signed on food stamps. Now the Obama administration spends millions of dollars on advertising calling people to sign up for coupons. In fact, their efforts to involve as many Americans as possible in the food stamp system are becoming quite creative ...

For Spanish-speaking citizens, radio broadcasts “novelas,” in which the use of food stamps is presented as part of the official task of increasing participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

Each story consists of a series of 10, called "PARQUE ALEGRIA", OR "PARK OF HOPE." In the semi-dramatic scenario, characters act to persuade people to get food stamps or explain how health benefits are for using them.

I’m ready to do anything to help those who can’t feed themselves, but do we really need advertising to encourage people to become more dependent on the government?

Of course, medical care (Obamakhranenie) greatly inflates our debts. Obamakranenie is supposed to add more than 2,6 trillions of dollars to US public debt in just the first decade.

So where do we get all this money?

We cannot spend money that we don’t have. We must prioritize. Each of the items of public spending should be reduced.

But instead, we behave as if we could rip off future generations of Americans, and nothing much will happen.

What we have done for our children and grandchildren is more than criminal.

The truth is that we should have listened to the warnings of our founding fathers about government debt. For example, Thomas Jefferson once said that if he could make another amendment to the constitution of the United States, he would impose a total ban on any borrowing of the federal government ...

I would like it to be possible to make one amendment to our Constitution, only one amendment, which would limit the right of our government to dispose of the true principles of the Constitution. I mean an additional article depriving the federal government of the right to borrow.

Where would we be today if we listened to the advice of Thomas Jefferson?

This is worth thinking about.

          Fortunately, you are wrong, if you follow your logic, then everyone has hands and a head, and nothing will happen to anyone. There will be and still will be the poor and so the name. the middle class, but the rich will have time to convert to another currency, and not only, but also they will call their new “Tugriks” at a good rate. I will try to prove my position allegorically - cash flows can be represented as flows of water, and banks - lakes, seas, oceans. These flows rotate the mills (enterprises) people work for them and get flour (s / n), there are a huge number of mills and they are multi-level and pipes with "milk rivers and jelly banks" (stock market) pass through them. And suddenly the dollar (water) is abolished at once and these streams, rivers, seas and oceans are drying up, the mills have stopped, the milk and acid shores have also disappeared. They launched new water, but there is no trust in it (it spreads badly), and there are no salaries anymore, the store doesn’t accept dollars, so the seller also won’t get anything and so on along the chain. I provide an average American (who is used to sitting on the fifth point) trying to grow something on his lawn near the house to feed his family (these are not our summer cottages), oh I don’t envy the Americans, I don’t envy.

        Paul Craig Roberts: American financial system will collapse

        According to former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury under President Reagan, Paul Craig Roberts, “the current situation is extremely dangerous. Such a world has not yet seen. " Dr. Roberts also says that JP Morgan has now begun to threaten the stability of the entire global financial system, and that if the Fed loses control and collapses, "no one will be safe anywhere."

    I constantly, at the risk of being known as a pro-Americanist, spoke.
    The United States therefore does not fool with its gigantic debt.
    Because there have already been precedents.
    Russia in 1917-1918 of the year. When a loaf of bread was worth a million "kernels" (film Republic Shkidt, remember).
    Poland of the same years approximately.
    Germany after the First World War.
    Brazil in the 1980 years when a new currency was introduced.
    Two fingers..boss - enter a new currency.
    And they will say in the old way - there is no way to pay. The whole Earth - not so much. Asteroid belt.
    Someone blame something against?
    And all business.
    Who do the Americans owe? Name specifically.
    Who will submit for payment?
    Most importantly - to whom?
    We with our dollars - to whom will we go? To the White House, or what?
    ... debts ... America ...
    litter their own heads ... and bring to America.
    Here, most importantly, do not forget - any money is just ... equivalent.

The governments of those countries that do not dare to demand money from America will fly off their seats with a bang they’ll start mercilessly killing all over the planet just because they are Americans. So America can’t save it beyond the oceans, it will only delay retribution. Such a world “kidka” for the Yankees will not go unpunished.

    Everyone knew about the debt, long before that, and if you know that your partner is a debtor, i.e. potential bankrupt You will try to stop working with them. Nothing personal just business. But in this case, everything went too far, the dollar-parasite penetrated into all countries and a unique situation arose when the dollar turned from a parasite into a symbiont and everyone is forced to support his life, otherwise they will also end. And there is no way out of this situation, or rather, that is, exits, but there are no more reasonable ones, they will pull the rubber. The Indians of May were right when they predicted the end of the world, so it came, they lived in America, respectively, and the prediction works in the same place. States will be slow
    but it will inexorably bend and democracy will disappear along with the US and the dollar. The only harbor in this storm is Russia, although many hope to sit out in Australia.

Under the guise of revolution you can buy the most promising companies in the world for nothing. And then for debts - to give to the federal reserve. And voila - the Federal Reserve, in the person of its owners, owns the lion's share of Fin. flows of the whole world.

    According to the results of the first half of 2008, America owed Russia 2,5% of its total public debt, or $ 65,3 billion. In March 2010, the United States owed Russia 3,2% of its total public debt, or $ 120.1 billion. According to various estimates, today the United States owes Russia 200 to 300 billion. The current yield from holding yusovskie debts is 2.5%. (credit to enterprises in Russia 12,5%, if you're lucky). I have a question for the President of the Russian Federation and the Government: for what benefits, with the stubbornness of donkeys, are you building up debts that no one will repay to Russia? The 2008 crisis had already happened, when they directly lost on Amer mortgage securities. Indirect losses are even greater. They have already killed Libya along with Russian defense and civilian contracts. Gentlemen, are you uneducable? Or are you someone's puppets?

      Everyone understands that US government bonds are a "fake", but there is no other MORE reliable investment tool in the world right now. So they are buying. But there is none because the monetary system controlled by amers is built this way laughing brilliantly invented all the same. Beads (green paper) in exchange for real values.
      What they have come to, some banks charge a commission for placing large funds on their accounts, that is, no interest on top, but vice versa.

          Gold is just the universally recognized equivalent, to the presence of which, ideally, the nat. currencies. Like metal - so-so. Therefore, ultimately the one who has land and means of production is rich. Glory to our ancestors, we have enough land. With the second - worse ...

        once it was, the money was stored in banks for commissions and only then they began to pay for deposits, but this happened when banks began to use clients' money for lending, more precisely, when non-cash money appeared.

    America is looking for a good excuse to give up the debt that they will come up with. Someone does not know. Also, with reference to Nixon, he refused to tie the dollar to gold.

    I don’t understand that people are so happy? The liquid masons, as always, will "enter paradise" on someone else's hump. and not the fact that this hump will not be ours. Their default is global 3rd world, in which few people survive. And here you will involuntarily think about what is better: an instant global p ... c, or continue to feed these freaks with the whole world. One thing is certain: this debt will NEVER and ANYONE be paid.

    Data on US debt are presented rather one-sidedly. In terms of GDP, it is now somewhere in the 30th place in the world. In addition, if now the public debt exceeds annual GDP by 1.2 times, then in 1946 it already exceeded it by 1,6 times. Thus, we can assume that this phenomenon is cyclical. In the mid-90s, Russia's public debt amounted to half of GDP, but we settled our debts over 15 years without much stress for the economy.

    Default and hyperinflation are possible, but hardly unavoidable. Everyone knows that if the States go to the bottom, they will drag everyone along. Nobody will shake debts from them and they will be given as much as they want. By the way, the modern economy is well acquainted with the mechanism of the development of default and hyperinflation by the example of the Great Depression and post-war (1 world war) Germany. Processes will either mitigate or prevent. In addition, do not forget their breathtaking scientific, military and commercial potential. America is far from piz..ts. Rather, it is about weakening the position of the United States and returning multipolarity to the world economy and politics.

    When the soap bubble of the United States economic well-being bursts, it will not seem to everyone. The great financier Kudrin invested Russian folk money in the US economy, so that people's gratitude is not far off. Obviously, the US lives beyond its means.

    "The US government stole $ 15.876.457.645.132,66 from future generations of Americans"

    the future of Amer’s generations is somehow indifferent to me, most likely this public debt will one day be declared unrealistic and somehow “written off”, but the loss of dollar savings by local oligarchs will lead to another jump in prices and a collapse that is barely making ends meet for the economy request

    So everyone can, but VERY not recommended. Hyperinflation is possible in the USA. If the US budget expenditures exceed its revenues, the US government issues debt bonds - treasures. The necessary amount to the budget, the US completes the Fed, which instead of the dollars created from the air and are given debt bonds hi

    @ We have accumulated the largest debt in the history of the world, and if the next generations of Americans appear, they will look back and curse us for what we have done. We like to think about ourselves that we are wiser than previous generations of Americans, but in fact we were so stupid that beyond words. @

    It seems to me that you need to carefully monitor the balances of GOLDEN SAX, Dzh.PI. Morgan and others like that - the owners of the machine. It’s a pity that this cannot be done without being inside. In my opinion, the scenario of a global scam is unlikely as long as there are Russia and China that could potentially roll into the radioactive trash of the United States (which is why our existence infuriates them). In the foreseeable future, it is more likely that the debtor and creditor will be castled. Dozens of banks, including GS and D.P.M, are emasculated by replacing securities with state paper waste, real assets are illiquid and leave the dollar space, leaving debt and creditors to the mercy of all owners of cut paper. In principle, the Cypriot situation is very similar to a rehearsal of such a scenario. If new financial mega-structures begin to grow in the world, then it has begun.
    I’ll add to the article: if the American debt is folded in bundles of banknotes of 100 dollars, this pile will be half the equator.
