From Jack Cafferty, CNN
The United States is on its way to being Greece one day, and no one wants to acknowledge it.
Our national debt increased by more than $200 billion in October alone.
That comes out to $650 for every man, woman and child in this country.
The U.S. debt is now at more than $14.9 trillion … and likely will top a staggering $15 trillion by the end of November.
The congressional “super committee” is trying to cut $1.2 trillion over 10 years. That's not even a drop in the bucket - and lawmakers are still whining about how hard it is.
The whole idea that the federal government is in any way serious about the national debt is a joke. Even after America's credit rating was downgraded, our leaders continue to spend money at an unsustainable rate.
And, if they don't get serious - and very soon - you only need to take a look at Greece for a glimpse of our future.
The Greek government is on the verge of collapse in the wake of its debt crisis.
The euro and European banks have been thrown into crisis by Greece's debt and by Prime Minister George Papandreou's actions.
First, Papandreou announced there would be a referendum vote on the European bailout - and now he says there won't. Meanwhile, his government might vote him out of power Friday.
Greece has been holding the world hostage because Papandreou's government doesn't have the stones to make the tough decisions.
Sounds kind of like the politicians here who don't have the stones to tell the American people the party is over and it's time to pay the tab.
Here's my question to you: Is Greece a preview of what's to come for the U.S.?
