Can somebody help me to understand the whole picture here because we keep talking about this amount of money as though it exists. As far as I understand it the question is would it be alright if they add $700 billion or however much it ends up being to the national debt. Isn't the problem that our national debt is so high it is dubious whether people want to do business with us because we are so far in debt? They keep saying the tax payers are going to pay it...when are we going to pay it? How much are the installments going to be for me personally, how long do we have? Since that amount of money does not currently exist where will they get it before the tax payers have paid for it? Are they going to print money?
