Not true. The govt has enough money to operate and pay the bills while still providing the entitlement payments such as soc sec and medicare. What we WON'T be able to do is BORROW more money from China or anyone else and get further and further into debt. We don't need to borrow ourselves into oblivion, we need to stop new spending and cut bad programs that waste our money.
