We can afford it. We just don't have the will to make the decisions that would pay it back. As to the future, only religious fanatics and global warming fanatics try to predict the future.

Just remember this my friends, no matter what your party vote for cuts to social security so we can show the baby boomers how much we appreciated their spending habits, hopefully they can spend their retirement years living the type of lifestyle most of us are living through our youth.

I think by then they will wise up .....and do what we should have done so as not to have all that debt... they will tax the rich way more and tax big corporations way more and put transaction taxes on exchanges like Wall Street all over the world...etc...... and don't forget......when all those high taxes happen, the economies will be better like they used to be when taxes were higher on the rich and maybe we will even smarten up and end outsourcing of jobs overseas....and when you walk into the Walmart of 2050 or so, maybe 65% of the goods on their shelves will be made in the USA...and since so many more Americans will be working and paying taxes there will be even more tax revenue streams to pay off debts.... so there you have it ...
