Voters should consider growing national debt

All U.S. citizens together are $16 trillion in debt. That's $53,000 per person, including children and grandchildren.

When President Barack Obama took office, it was $35,000 per person.

Mitt Romney and Rep. Paul Ryan want to diffuse this "time bomb." Obama won't. Democrats won't.

Let's hope responsible voters consider this.
