When people write bad checks they visit district court but when the givernment does it the debt ceiling conveniently gets raised. This is why the dollar is now falling against currencies like the Mexican peso and the mighty Costa Rican colon.

"Most likely bankruptcy."

If you want to be taken seriously, at least try to be rational.

Sequestration can't happen, not because people might loose jobs, politicians could care less about the citizenry, its all about government contracts and lobbying.

How many entities do you know of that are $16.5 trillion in debt and not considered bankrupt?

Not surprising that a Prof from UVA is worried about government handouts. We have been spending like crazy for the last 4 years. I don't remember anyone saying that we have a growing economy.

I wouldn't be listening to anyone from Darden about any financial future or crisis. They can't keep their own house in order. The place is falling apart; going down real fast.

We are the most broke country in the history of the world! cutting 1% of a non-existent deficit budget isnt even a serious gesture towards fiscal and economic soundness and sanity!
I dont think most people realize just how screwed this country is. all of us are screwed!
we are heading towards total economic collaspe. there really isnt much we can do about it. how and when it will occur is anyones guess!!
be ready for anything folks. if this is how our politicians react to a puny reduction of spending just wait till the dollar devalues and becomes worthless and the means of our countrys power and prosperity is removed!!

it will not be a pretty sight....

Where is the improvement in government or the unions? It sure is not in the private sector.
