Does US Need IMF to Get Debt Under Control?


The International Monetary Fund caused a stir earlier this week when it said the United States may have a hard time meeting a G20 goal of halving the deficit by 2013.

The U.S. Treasury insisted Washington would meet its commitment and President Obama laid out a plan on Wednesday to cut the deficit by $4 trillion over 10 years.

What do you think? Does the United States need the IMF to get the national debt under control?
