So, I'm browsing around the web, researching, and trying to find info on funding of the US Dept. of the Treasury, and I come across this FAQ on treasurydirect.gov


Financing the Debt

Why does the debt sometimes decrease?
The Public Debt Outstanding decreases when there are more redemptions of Treasury securities than there are issues.

How do you make a contribution to reduce the debt?
There are two ways for you to make a contribution to reduce the debt:
- You can make a contribution online either by credit card, checking or savings account at Pay.gov
- You can write a check payable to the Bureau of the Public Debt, and in the memo section, notate that it's a Gift to reduce the Debt Held by the Public. Mail your check to:

Attn Dept G
Bureau of the Public Debt
P. O. Box 2188
Parkersburg, WV 26106-2188


Frequently Asked Questions about the Public Debt

I found it extremely amusing


Disappointed that it's just about the most they had to offer on the subject, though. Thought I would share anyhow...

Jesus Christmas... I can't find my checkbook fast enough.

I thought I sent them a check every year anyway (it all goes to the same folks). Now they want more? MORE? They're a veritable Oliver Twist aren't they?

I know, right?

But hey, someone should take one for the team. Preferably someone that banks with J.P. Morgan Chase. Just write a check; they should be able to cover it

I can help.

Due to financial circumstances I'd have to make it in installments. How does $25/month sound?

We could have this solved in a mere 53 billion years!

No need to thank me. Seriously!

Anytime someone has to "take one for the team" it usually involves lots of pain and embarrassment.
Fortuntaley Hessling has offered to do it. I was going to...really. But he/she got back here first.

Even the first response, though...


The Public Debt Outstanding decreases when there are more redemptions of Treasury securities than there are issues.


Admittance of Treasury securities as "issues"


The blatant scam is so sad...

Damn.

I must've left my $16 trillion in my other pair of pants.

I guess there won't be no bailout for the gubment today. Maybe I'll send the check in after I collect my winnings from the Nigerian internet lottery.
