BEIJING - The mouthpiece of the Chinese Communist Party has castigated the United States' handling of its debt crisis as "irresponsible" and "immoral", saying in a Saturday editorial that the US democratic system was to blame for the "farce."

The official People's Daily newspaper accused US politicians of "sacrificing other people's interests in exchange for a few votes", adding that "not a single representative has considered the world, and even US national interests are being banished from the mind".

It said elections next year meant that each representative was unwilling to risk being tarnished with "the crime of giving way".

"The voting system has restricted the White House's power to act," it said. "The farce taking place on the US political stage has let the whole world know where the United States' political problems are."
