Okay, so try and follow my logic on this one because I think I’ve got a solution that just might solve all our problems: so the US debt is like $14 trillion, right? I know, I know, sounds pretty bad. But think about it – the US has a population of roughly 312 million people. So let’s just do a little math here… 14 trillion divided by 312 million…carry the one… and… see, each American just has to pay a one-time fee of about $45,000 to eliminate the debt once and for all! Wait… did I just say $45,000? Every single American would need to pay $45,000??? OH MY GOD, WE’RE ALL TOTALLY SCREWED! How could we ever let this happen? I’m holding you personally responsible! (Pointing aggressively) Yes, you! Explain right now, how the hell could we ever have let this happen?!?
