The federal government is bankrupt — literally and morally

Our morally bankrupt elected officials have done it again. Less than a week after the bipartisan debt commission issued their ominously titled report, "The Moment of Truth," the phonies in Washington plan to add nearly $1 trillion of additional debt. This is what governing in America has become, spending money that does not exist to placate various interest groups and transferring the debt to future generations. Would you do this with your family's finances?
