The problem is that people have a tendency to conceptualize complex things in more simplistic ways they can understand. So, the national economy is thought of as similar to one's personal finances (which, of course, it isn't). Hell, a large chunk of the debt is money we owe to ourselves. Cheney wasn't entirely wrong when he said "Deficits don't matter." This is a made up crisis so the plutocrats can steal more from the social safety net and funnel into their coffers.
