The govt went broke in 2008 as were the banks. ( which are being re-capitalized with money printing for the next bubble) Oh, and I didn't get that from "faux" news either. I don't watch it much anyway these days just certain times along with switching back and forth to CNN.
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
