One Way to Solve the Deficit Crisis...

Man accused of trying to cash check for 360 Billion dollars

Do you mean that we should solve the national debt crisis by having the government write huge checks to cover it and hope somebody cashes them? Somehow I don't think it would work any better than it did for that guy.

Or do you mean we should prosecute our Congresscritters for (in effect) kiting trillion-dollar checks on your and my bank accounts? I'd like that, and if it worked it just might discourage the next bunch.

I wonder how the bank got tipped off? Plus, how is the prosecutor going to prove that the defendant should have reasonably known that the check was faulty?

Unfortunately, this is not much different than what the government does now to pay off our debt.
