A knock on the door interrupts Tom from his football game. His wife and two kids are out shopping, so who could it be? Answering the door, an official envelope is provided to him from the United States Government. ‘What could this be’? He wondered, as the game goes into another commercial.
Opening the envelope, he is greeted with a bill from the government for $43,000 dollars.
Since Obama has come into the office, the debt ceiling has been raised seven times. Those increases from Congress added an additional $43,000 dollars for every individual American household, this last four years. While no “official envelope” is provided, the debt is real.
