Walter E. Williams lays out the problem pretty well. The only problem is that he is just one voice. The Democrats have their heads buried in... uh... the sand. You don't hear about this crisis from the media, because they agree with the Dems. Even the Republicans only "get religion" when they are out of power (Medicare drug care expansion anyone?). Also Republican have the House and could stop raising the debt ceiling but they won't. They should be on every talk show and refusing to talk about anything else -- but they won't. A real CRASH is coming.
