Video: US Comptroller on 60 Minutes: says America is facing total collapse

I’m guessing it has something to do with the current administration…

The US Comptroller, the government’s top accountant, says the US is risking total bankruptcy if trends continue on 60 minutes segment. The nation incurring a massive debt on the next generation with its present policies. In 30 years time, the US will only have enough money to pay the interest on its debt, with no money for the military.

Most US adults in the dark about world politics

US Democratic Senator from New York and presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton speaks at a fundraising event, in March, in Washington, DC. A survey gave Clinton a healthy lead over her main rival Barack Obama for the Democratic primary race.
