How much of every dollar the government spends is BORROWED? [/quote] I do believe we have to borrow 1.2 trillion each year to balance the books. The interest on the money is a good question! Most of the money borrowed these days is direct from the Fed. [/quote] Various figures show that the government borrows 46-48 cents for every dollar it spends. Interest expense so far for the fiscal year 2013: $395,845,239,236.39 :P [/quote]

All it does is it says you got to pay the bills that you've already racked up, Congress. It's a basic function of making sure that the full faith and credit of the United States is preserved."
