#3 Remember its government accounting. It doesn't include future obligations already committed (ie pensions)*, because they're only reporting what's due today and on the debt interest (treasury bonds, etc). * not much different than today's state and cities who've now hit that big black hole, but don't have the means to 'legally' (inflate) money.

#6 Its so massive the LeftMedia has begun showing on TV only debt figures that are already outdated, + had been for a time.

GOP-DEM Congresscritters also want to copy or adopt France's method of temporary raises in the debt ceiling, which other EU States are repor also mulling to adopt.

Finally, there's the "write-off", its-not-fudging-the books-iff the-Govt-does-it method the Soviets used just before their USSR imploded + collapsed, i.e. where THEY ROUTINELY JUST ERASED THEIR GOVT-PUBLIC LIABILITIES FROM THE ACCOUNTING + BUDGETING BOOKS, ETC.

I can see the Bammer telling JAPAN now - "We in the USA rly rely Really REALLY RRRREEEEEELLLLYY,
D *** YOU, WANT TO INTERVENE ON YOUR BEHALF AGZ CHINA OER THE DISPUTED SENKAKUS/DIAOYU ISLANDS BUT UNFORTUNATELY AMERICA CAN'T AFFORD IT - WE'RE WITH YOU IN SPIRIT, THOUGH".
