"We are not having a debt crisis. It’s important to make this point, because I keep seeing articles about the “fiscal cliff” that do, in fact, describe it — often in the headline — as a debt crisis. But it isn’t. The U.S. government is having no trouble borrowing to cover its deficit, No, what we’re having is a political crisis, born of the fact that one of our two great political parties has reached the end of a 30-year road."
Paul Krugman of The New York Times
So as long as we can keep borrowing, spending isn't a problem according to this lunatic. The CBO estimates that the U.S. will be paying $778B in interest alone by the year 2020. 3.4% of GDP
No problem whatsoever.
