All of the measures by the feds to stem the tide in the financial meltdown have added hundreds of billions of dollars to our national debt. FRONTLINE reports on how this debt will constrain and challenge the new administration, and on the growing chorus, that without fiscal reform the US government may face a debt crisis of its own in years to come that make the current financial problems look almost painless by comparison.

This is a must see film after IOUSA. IOUSA offers an excellent historical overview. This hones in on the present administration. Well done!

$Ten Trillion and counting explains it

By Merle from Michigan

from Southeast Michigan

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: Ten Trillion and Counting DVD:

This movie explains how we got into this mess completely. They went back to the the Presidents that spent and the promises made, then highlights when the promises had to be adjusted. It's important to see who listened to their advisers and who didn't. Well paid advisers are hard to find!

A true must-see for American taxpayers

By Bret Whitney

from Austin, Texas, baby.

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: Ten Trillion and Counting DVD:

It's about time we had a concise and truly objective recounting of the bad accounting. To Forrest Sawyer: Well done, my friend! You did a commendable job of distilling this incredibly complex issue, in historical context, into a digestible hour of television. That footage of the people in the "room with an undisclosed location near the White House", though cursory, was pretty cool. "We" out here don't know that room exists... but we've definitely been wondering how it was all happening, the massive loans, and from whom, on what collateral. You could have spent a bit more time on that, and a bit more time in educating a majority of Americans on what their taxes are actually FOR -- explaining WHY we MUST pay hefty taxes IF we are going to sustain a luxurious lifestyle in this country. (You know, this is never really TAUGHT to kids at any point through high school, and they don't get it at college if they're not economics majors!). You did a fabulous job, too, of homing in on the unfathomable risk we are signing off on when we secure these loans. Where's it headed? Well, it doesn't look very encouraging from an economic perspective. It's really quite scary. And that's about where you had to leave it, for the moment. But I think you did well to subtly gloss it all with a shine of hope -- because there really IS hope, and I'm convinced that it outranks despair in this country today, on 25 March 2009. Please consider doing this piece again, at the end of Obama's term(s). We don't know where we'll be then, but wherever it is, your current piece will serve as an excellent sounding board. Way to go, man!
