    Comparing the debt/GDP level under Reagan to the Debt/GDP level under obama is not an honest assessment of our current situation.

    ThinkProgress has a lot of issues with reporting in a politically motivated manner instead of a truth seeking manner.

    Debt limit reached, US halts 2 pension investments - Yahoo! News

    Wait a minute...people working for the GOV are paying into this pension plan but the Government is not living up to the terms of that contract?

    So in effect the FED is STILL borrowing money, only they're doing it by borrowing from their own workforce?

    My oh my! This IS getting interesting.

    You have to give obama credit for changing his position once he had all the facts.
