Assuming the usa is in debt 130 trillion dollars and they find a way to save 600 billion/year in some fantasy land vs being in the red 5 trillion every year.  That includes cutting all Obamcare, Militairy, Social Security.  Basically everything. 

130 trillion divided by 600 billion per year in surplus..  Equals:  217 years.  Assuming the interest on the 130 trillion is zero. lol   So basically 500 years..  maybe 1000 years.  This whole exercise has hurt my brain.  And was a bit depressing.  I had to lash out at the insanity of the so called fiscall cliff.  Its more like an ant hill in a galaxy.  Go Sandstrom Gold!!!
