Is America too big to fail?

Greece is one of many nations in Europe currently facing a major debt crisis. In order to secure loans from the European Central Bank. Greece is required to take austarity measure to cut spending, which means that many Government services and entitlements must be severely cut, of not totally eliminated. The issue that I present is; could what is happening in Greece happen here in America? Or, is America too big to fail? Recently, The National Debt if the USA passed 16 trillion dollars and if our country's physcal policies do not change, the debt could reach 20 trillion dollars by 2016. Currently, out of every dollar the US Government is spending, 42 cents is borrowed.
