    Taiwan: $153.4 billion (1.1 percent)
    Brazil: $211.4 billion (1.5 percent)
    Oil exporting countries: $229.8 billion (1.6 percent)
    Mutual funds: $300.5 billion (2 percent)
    Commercial banks: $301.8 billion (2.1 percent)
    State, local and federal retirement funds: $320.9 billion (2.2 percent)
    Money market mutual funds: $337.7 billion (2.4 percent)
    United Kingdom: $346.5 billion (2.4 percent)

    I have heard that the Banks hold up to 1 Trillion in Treasury Bonds, State and local and Pension Funds hold allot of money. It is very scary at this point.
    It is the time right now to get our debt under control. We need to cut at least 1 trillion right away and more with a 6 month period and not spread out over decade either.

    Do we keep on spending? I say no if the President doesn't get realistic it is all on him. He is in charge it is time to get it done. Not over ten years either immediately!
