I Guess We Can't Afford It

Here’s a question Congress is incapable of asking: Can we afford it? For an answer, we check in on the Treasury site again to assess the nation’s credit limit:
The Federal debt has risen $502 billion since the end of the ’08 fiscal year, Sept. 30.
Funny story. We put out a press release for the film pointing out that the debt was rising this fast and cited the Treasury’s own chart. We were immediately attacked as alarmist. The numbers -- and our credibility -- were called into question.
The weight of denial out there in media-land is, well, very heavy.
