According to financial magazine Forbes, $17 trillion is just the tip of the ice berg.  “The United States has nearly a hundred times that in long-term unfunded liability,” Johnson stated.  According to Forbes, the total amount of unfunded liabilities is $126 trillion, or $1.1 million per U.S. taxpayer.  “While the US National Debt Clock may calculate that every man, woman and child owes $55,346 in funded liabilities, it is the actual tax payers that will end up paying over $1 million in both funded and unfunded liabilities to pay this debt back,” Johnson explained. According to the Senate Budget Committee, $3.7 trillion has been spent on welfare which according to Forbes has contributed the most to the rising debt.  “Social Security is not an entitlement,” Johnson stated.  “Taxpayers pay into this fund and expect the money they put in to...
