    Who Owns the National Debt

    With so many major countries in massive debt, it naturally leads to the question who do they owe? In other words, where is this wealth being borrowed from? Turns out...




    So in our case, 47% of the debt is held by the Fed Reserve and Government (for example S.S.) whereas in those other nations you can see in red how much is held by foreign interests.

    Yet we hear so much about Chinese ownership of our debt. I guess that is usually overstated.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    What does "other" mean? American nationals or companies abroad? Or private foreign investors?

    I'm not sure...I wouldn't think private investors. I'll try to track down the original source.

    Harry Reid on Raising Debt Limit to $18.794T: ‘We’ll Raise It’
    November 7, 2012 -– Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said on Wednesday that if the $16.394 current legal limit on the federal government's debt must be raised in the next few months by another $2.4 trillion, “We’ll raise it."
    That would set the debt limit at $18.794 trillion. During a Capitol Hill press conference on Wednesday, CNSNews.com asked: “Senator Reid, the Treasury Department said last week that we will hit the debt ceiling again near the end of the year. Are you prepared—will you support—" “I don’t think the debt ceiling will come after the first of the year,” Reid said. “But please everyone accept this: They tried it before—they, the Republicans.”

    “They tried it before – ‘We’re going to shut down the government, and we’re not going to raise the debt ceiling,’” he said. “If they want to go through that again, fine." “But we’re not going to be held subject to something that was done as a matter of fact in all previous administrations,” Reid said.

    CNSNews.com then asked, “But will you support raising it by another $2.4 trillion?” “If it has to be raised, we’ll raise it,” he said. On Aug. 2, 2011, Congress and President Barack Obama reached a deal to raise the debt ceiling by $2.4 trillion. Now, after only 15 months, almost all of that additional borrowing authority has been exhausted, according to the U.S. Treasury Department.

    CNSNews.com reported that Treasury quietly announced a week ago that it expects the federal government to hit its legal debt limit before the end of this year. "Treasury continues to expect the debt limit to be reached near the end of 2012," said the 10th paragraph of the "Quarterly Refunding Statement" put out by Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Financial Markets Matthew Rutherford. "However, Treasury has the authority to take certain extraordinary measures to give Congress more time to act to ensure we are able to meet the legal obligations of the United States of America," the statement said.

    Reid has zero concept of fiscal responsibility.

    Why would he? He has no ethics and is more than happy to let future generations pay for his decisions today.

    Reid doesn't believe in fiscal responsibility. He believes in fiscal dependency.
