"So the United States officially has a national debt of twenty trillion dollars. Forbes recently did the math and, based on the estimate that Taylor Swift earned $80 million last year, Taylor Swift would have to do one concert every single day for three years just to pay one day of interest on the national debt. That's right -- such a figure wouldn't even cut into the principal. It would simply pay one day of interest. After three years of daily performances, one of the most successful singers in the world would be able to pay one day of the interest on the national debt. This is not a problem that people take very seriously, because it's so out there, it’s so ... intangible. We have no idea how the national debt is a force crushing our necks." (12/14/16)
