  •  To me a better question is "will the U.S. . . . " (8+ / 0-)

    because they surely can't be done yet, even after March.  This is about the debt right?  Well, and the deficit but because the deficit contributes to the debt.  Nothing done now or in March will keep the national debt from rising.  I believe the estimates under Obama's and the repubs ten year plans have the national debt at 22-25 trillion within that ten years.  And they've barely made headweigh on the over 1 trillion per year deficit.  Now I agree it's all bullshit, but the political excuse of the debt and deficit for attacking social programs (they sure aren't going to attack the MIC and the Global Military Empire) is not going away, like forever.  So if the oligarchy's politicians continue with this debt and deficit game, there is a long way to go.
