National Debt: $8.5 Trillion and counting

It's been almost exactly one year since I wrote about America's out-of-control debt, thanks to our compulsive spending president. At that time, the debt clock had just clicked over the $8 trillion mark.

I know hardly anyone is paying attention to the debt, so I'll beat this dead horse. One year later under majority Republican rule, the debt continues to careen out of control, growing more than $500 Billion.

How much longer will the flow of foreign capital continue to support our insatiable spending spree? Without it, America's ability to continue to influence global affairs will be greatly diminished.

Mr. Bush, stop spending my children's future!
