Truth be told there are only 4 countries in the world that aren't in debt, none being strongly developed economies. The deficit in the US keeps rising due to all of the unnecessary money spent on the military and other services. Their money is not budgeted well. The debt will continue to rise until Obama does something about it, along with a ban on guns.
Bombs and jet helicopters are not cheap . Welfare and support for other police or rebels the gov supports in other country's . The war on drugs on our own people not cheap. Comes down to politicians serving their own interest not the people's
