Maybe if we had some support from other countries we could get out of debt and build the economy back up to its full potential. We would also use the euro and we could trade more easily with other countries . We might hit bumps in the road but in the end it would be better than now
The European Union is designed to help the various countries of Europe work together on their common political and economic goals. The United States is not a country in Europe. Not only that, we fought a couple of wars to escape European control. The US joining the EU would not make sense for either side and will never happen.
