Question: At which point, and at what level, will those wishing to face the debt problem not be crazies?

Posted by hsvkitty | Report as abusive

Simple, hsvkitty, once the bond market starts treating US debt the way they are presently treating Greece, we will then acknowledge that it is time to take our debt seriously.

Until then, those who are afraid of where we are headed are “crazies”.
