I have fixed america

Oh my gosh listen to my great idea, listen to it right now:  from now on, every time somebody wants to buy ad time for a political candidate they have to match it with an equal payment on the national debt.

That way we're not messing with the political process, because the richest/most popular/best connected guy still gets to be president like always, but the swift, sure growth of the national debt will be slightly impeded!  

You're welcome.

If you need me I'll be over here fist-pumping the sky until I dislocate my elbow.

I like it. What if we took it a step further and PACs had to match their total expenditures for a candidacy with a debt pay-down? OR maybe if the candidate the PAC supported loses, they have to pay double.

PS, Claire, that was also my favorite line in that article. :)
