Decifits will very likely NOT be $1 Trillion per year. They will likely be much higher.

We are on a knife’s edge. As Europe is also showing, high debt with a slowing economy creates a vicious cycle. As the economy declines, tax revenues decline even faster, creating even larger deficits and making the debt even more difficult to sell.

All it will take is some kind, any kind, of economic shock to cause this.

Updated my tag line, damnit!

Why must we learn US news from a foreign newspaper?
