What Our Government Spends on INTEREST

March 29th, 2008 at 02:59 pm

Thanks to rduell for posting the link to Maxed Out yesterday. I just finished watching it, and WOW! I imagine it has a profound effect on anyone who sees it. I think I will send the link to my son (who is going off to college in the fall). It was so sad to see the loved ones of the several people who saw no other way out of debt but to kill themselves. Just heartbreaking. And so preventable!!

One statement in the film made my jaw drop to the ground: The U.S. Government spends more on interest than on homeland security, education, and healthcare combined. Absolutely staggering. And it scares me to death!

Very powerful film.

    It is a very powerful film. I paused it several times to jot down statistics for my speech.

    I also sent the link to my 2 college kids and will probably send it to the one heading off to college this summer.
