    The US cannot “face a debt crisis similar to some European nations.” As an issuer of its own currency, the US can always pay its debts.

    Over the “cliff” the bloated military is going “down” to half a trillion bucks a year.

    To match the Germans the military industry complex should go down to two twelths of a trillion bucks a year.

    The US hasd been borrowing trillions for a navy which is a “global force for good” (according the the recruiting ad on the Eagles game) which has nothing to do with the US constitution nor defending the “general welfare” which is being plundered by the military industry complex.

    Let the cliff happen!

    @jbhughes
    This kind of thinking (i.e. US can always pay its debts) is the kind of
    arrogance that will eventually sink the US.
    The US can only pay its debts if others accept its currency.
    There is nothing sacred about the US$….its day can (and just may) come, I am afraid.
