Default Rising US National Debt 2017

The bulk of the U.S. national debt in 2017 (over $14.5 trillion worth), is owned by a consortium of public sector groups, foreign governments, banks, insurance companies, and others. Some of this debt is concentrated, not only in U.S. Treasuries, but in savings bonds and Treasury Insurance Protected Securities (TIPS).

When this debt rises in an unsustainable manner, such as is the case today, it increases the long-term obligations of the U.S. government and increases interest payments necessary to service the debt load. Since the government receives the bulk of revenues in the form of taxes, higher interest payments and future obligations put upward pressure on taxes down the line.
