I hope China puts some heavy pressure on the US to curb its runaway spending and show some level of financial restraint. Our elected officials have failed us and are driving us so far into debt that it has completely destroyed our manufacturing sector and has cause us to throw away billions and billions of dollars in tax money overseas paying interest on the governments debt. Hopefully China now carries a big enough stick to force our government to act fiscally responsible.
