BTW, people like who? The American people as a whole dont want to know the truth. They allow themselves to be blindly led by the nose by their government, as long as the hand outs continue and the speeches make good sound bites. The problem is not the govt, its the overall ignorance of most people and their laziness when it comes to understanding simple things like economics. Its not rocket science, when you spend more than you make, you go in the hole. The govt has been spending more than they take in for a long time.
Its not hidden from people, people just dont want to see it. Blame your fellow citizens for that.....
