How Much Debt Can The US Withstand?

We got 20 trillion in national debt, why can't we go to 35 trillion? Why can't we go to 40 trillion? 

Why can't we just continue to increase the national debt? 

It reminds me of the old adage about how many straws can you put on a on a camel's back? You don't know until you put that final straw that's one too many and then you break its back. 

So, can we go to 25 trillion? Maybe. But can we go to 30 trillion? We're not going to know. At some point we're gonna break the back of the camel with all this debt and then we're gonna find out how much debt we can pile on and it's not going to be pretty because then we're gonna have a crisis.
