Seems like the election of Senator Brown has slowed the additions to our National Debt.

His comment about members of Congress taking a pay cut every year the country runs a deficit must have fallen on sensitive ears.

When Nancy Pelosi admits she couldn't even get the votes to pass the Senate version of Healthcare to avoid having it go back to the Senate, well what do you know.

All of a sudden a number of democrats are making extra visits home to see if they can salvage their Job.

And I heard both Barbara Boxer and Harry Reid are anticipating a strongly contested election run from Republican contenders.

The $880B referred to is SHORT-TERM debt (e,g, out of the current Fiscal Year $1.4 Trillion deficit) instruments (e.g. 90-day T-bills, 1 or 2 yr Bonds) held by foreigners. This would be a much larger number if applied to the overall $12 Trillion national DEBT,

The number I heard was that congress was raising Obama's deficit from 8 trillion to 12 trillion. Billion is a Bush administration word.

"...today, foreigners own 44% of all the country's short-term debt, or about $880 billion."

It's interesting that when Bill Clinton saw the sign "It's about the economy Stupid," he focused on that. In comparison with Obama, now I'm thinking Clinton was a absolute genius.

I heard it said that at this same time in the Bush presidency, he was at the Twin Towers sight with a bull horn and owned the moment. Obama isn't even taking responsibility for his own actions.

Wall Street Journal? Carnegie-Melton University?

Just another hole in the bubble of wishes, and scary as Hades.
