When are US citizens going to take responsibility for bankrupting America?

They blame Obama. They blame the banks. They blame wall street. Yet, they keep spending. When are they going to admit they spent more money than they had on extravagant homes, cars and lifestyle?

I am 22. I earn under $20,000 a year. I have never owned a credit card, much less a mortgage on a house. The newest car I've ever owned was a 1998 Ford Taurus. I was able to pay my way through college and earned a BS in chemistry-with NO debt. Don't accuse ME of YOUR indulgence!
