I will donate $1,000,000 to the US Govt This Year

The US debt is a big problem (currently ~$16T, or about ~$50K per person). I’m willing to do my share to help pay it off. To do this, I need the government to commit to a sustainable plan so that I’m not just throwing good money after bad.

Thus I make this promise:

If Washington can make spending match tax receipts, I will donate an extra $1,000,000 to the USA to help pay down the debt.

    I got brieflyexcited about everyone forgoing a couple of movies to get rid of the problem, but then I realized there’s probably meant to be a ‘K’ after the $50 :(

    Very nice!

    Much to my chagrin, the powers that be in the Government do not realize that this is a problem. It is so depressing, I can understand your frustration.

    It is only when we have surpassed the “progressive” direction that Greece has taken, that some folks will see the problem. Even then, I expect that many will still attempt to get blood-from-a-stone (more taxes from a defaulting economy), and think that they can spend their way out of the problem. (i.e., not match expenditures with tax receipts).
