U.S. debt jumps a record $328 billion — tops $17 trillion for first time
U.S. debt jumped a record $328 billion on Thursday, the first day the federal government was able to borrow money under the deal President Obama and Congress sealed this week.

The debt now equals $17.075 trillion, according to figures the Treasury Department posted online on Friday.

The $328 billion increase shattered the previous high of $238 billion set two years ago.

The giant jump comes because the government was replenishing its stock of “extraordinary measures” — the federal funds it borrowed from over the last five months as it tried to avoid bumping into the debt ceiling. ...

I don't understand why you say that's impossible, so no, I suppose I don't understand how it works. Whose savings are you referring to?

My observation is simply that we have a cultural consensus that debt is a good thing, or at least tolerable, but I dissent. Am I mistaken here?

Debt is the American Way of Life, & it's What the People Want. This is clear in the public, commerical, & private spheres.

Recently we've been seen ads warning how terrible it would be if Congress revoked the tax deduction on mortgage interest, a relatively minor issue by comparison. Poor little Johnny would have no home to sleep in ! Unsurprisingly, these were sponsored by the real-estate lobby.

I wish I could hide from my foolish fellow Americans somehow, per. Prov. 22:3, so I'll not have to suffer from their stupidity.

Harry Leeson, T-bills, notes and bonds make up a percentage of debt, obviously. But total US debt also includes things like our now decrepid housing market (thanks Freddie and Fannie) and other personal debt, plus private corporation debt. Just our national debt totals are painfully misleading - they don't take into account Social Security and Medicare payments (just the trust funds only and those are rather easily manipulated) and some other government securities. It's actually far, far worse than the $17-whatever-trillion they mention in this article.

And, sadly, if the government finds something else to do with the money than pay off EE bonds, don't think for a second they love you that much!

No, the money is owed to those who hold US government bonds.

I have a significant amount of them, and they provide a nice steady income and well secured nest egg. Thanks.

Of course we are going to fix the national debt. If we run the the number up high enough then surely those to whom we owe money will simply stop counting and forget right? And even computer systems can only count so high...

What? You mean you don't simply raise your debt ceiling, like fools in Washington do?

The government can't even control the national debt, and now it controls our health care (despite no constitutional authority to do so). Not hard to see an abysmal failure on the horizon.
