BREAKING: United States No Longer Going Bankrupt

| Tue May 14, 2013 5:05 PM EDT

The CBO has released its latest budget projections, and guess what? The medium-term national debt has stabilized. Hooray!

You might still not be happy about this. Maybe you won't be happy until debt drops back down to Carter-era levels. That's fine. It's a free country, after all. But for the next decade, at least, the trendlines are no longer shooting upward, and if the economy continues to improve the trendlines will look even better. So no more screaming about how the country is going bankrupt, OK?
