Do you get annoyed with your spouse when they tell you that they are going to only spend $100 shopping, but you find out later when you balance the checkbook that it was much closer to $200? Now imagine finding out that they spent 10 times what they said they would. Well, I’ve got good news and bad new for you if you are a US citizen. The good is that your spouse didn’t do this. The bad news is that your government did, and the amount the country is left to balance is nearly 3 trillion.
