What is the reason for our country's gigantic amount of debt?


What do you think causes the most 'damage'? - Illegal Immigrants and the loss of taxes/amount of money paid to them for welfare type programs (that are not covered by the taxes they pay since they don't pay taxes)? - The money spend on unnecessary programs or misused programs? - The salaries of our 'leadership' such as the members of Congress and our president? - The money it costs to supply soldiers and such we send overseas to handle international conflicts, etc.? - The care for all the benefits prisoners receive in American jails? - Money spend on elections/campaigns? - Other reasons?
