This article is a another attempt to blame China for the USA's debt, what do you think would happen if China didn't buy our debt, they need us as much as we need them. It's not China's fault they buy our debt, it's our systems fault for selling it to them. Reduce spending tax the hell out of any company that destroys american jobs by exporting them over seas. Don't give me the "oh we can't do that, the poor companies will just move out" Well then let them move out and tax them for moving out. Better for these scum suckers to get out of the USA than to stay here generating $$$ while destroying american employment.
