the biggest single creditor whom the federal government owes money to is — the american people: our social security “trust fund” which they’ve been “borrowing” from for decades. to hear them talk, it’s all about china: that’s a deliberate misdirection. sure they want to eliminate “entitlements:” they’ve already spent our money on tax breaks for the already-rich! the second largest single creditor is the federal reserve. do you know who actually owns the federal reserve? hint, they are in NO way a federal agency! they are owned by PRIVATE BANKS!!!
