From Kevin D. Williamson, the four national debts: ranging from the short-term to the long-term. As Williamson notes, it's those medium-term notes where the action is, and those turn over in the 1- to 10-year range, and as interest rates rise in the medium term, that's really going to hit. And can hit hard. Because some of the holders of said notes aren't too happy about the situation.
