Yesterday marked Debt Day, the day on which total government spending exceeds total federal revenues. So how does Washington keep functioning? You guessed it — borrow, borrow, borrow. Apparently it’s easier to pass the buck to the next generation than to be fiscally responsible at present. More info here.
Tomorrow marks Equal Pay Day, the feminist holiday mourning the effects of the wage gap. I don’t want to spoil all the fun (we’ll have plenty of info debunking the hysterics of equal pay day tomorrow) so for now I’ll just say, people should be much more concerned with Debt Day.
