This topic focuses on issues relating to the U.S. Deficit.

We have written more articles on the deficit than any other single topic. Why? Can you imagine owing money that you could never repay? Now pretend you live in a country where the leadership thinks they can borrow and spend and legally make its citizens pay the bills? Welcome to the United States.

Debt can ruin a person, a business and a country if not kept in check. Spending money one does not have does not solve the problem.

This is our page for all our published articles and reports on the U.S. deficit.
