Making Sense of Our Fiscal Mess


The national debt was the top issue cited by voters when Gallup asked what the country’s biggest problem would be in 25 years, but not everyone understands just how bad our country’s finances are. After the first few trillions, people’s eyes glaze over trying to count the zeros.

It’s well worth watching.
