Did you know you can donate money to the Treasury to specifically service the U.S. Public Debt?
While looking at the National Debt Clock today on the US Treasury website, I ran across the most absurd concept. I thought I should share it.
Buried in the Treasury FAQ is a tiny link to a site that allows you to make direct donations to service the National Debt.
How absurd. I then looked up 31 U.S.C. 3113 and found out the law was passed on January 3, 2012.
It must have been a part of the last Debt Ceiling or Budget negotiations.
As far as I can tell, the donations are not considered tax-deductible.
Will you be donating?
