    Each legal citizen of the USA is on the hook for $60,000 or more. I don’t know anybody who has that kind of money laying around that they could gift it to the Government. If reckless spending isn’t curtailed, we are headed for national bankruptcy. We’ll all be equal then, equally poor and very hungry because nobody will have any money to buy any food.

    So when will the republican controlled house begin to control the purse strings of our government? They should have already defunded the DOJ,FBI,IRS, Dept. of Education and Dept. of Energy as well as reduced the money we are wasting to fund the UN and a ridiculous portion of NATO. So we waste taxpayers money on Ukraine, paying ransom to Muslim terrorist to get kidnapped Americans returned. We are also paying money to China and propelling the Mexican drug cartels into the status of the world’s richest. We are paying for millions of illegal immigrants government has given carte blanche to for anything and everything they want. But we are running out of SS and Medicare fund money yet have millions of Americans starving and homeless living in the streets.

    Anyone who doesn’t think it’s a threat to our national security is galacticly stupid. Unfortunately I believe it will happen sooner than later and many will be blindsided. No more govt assistance, no more military or policing. Utilities shut down, food scarcity. America will become another 3rd world shit hole. Most of which can be blamed on political decisions for personal enhanced wealth and for re-election.
