Retiring the Public Debt

I knew that you could donate to the federal government, but I just found out today that you can make a donation to reduce the public debt. It’s even tax-deductible! Which may seem nonsensical (if I wanted to give more money to the federal government, why would I turn around and give them less money?), but I can see how one might feel that reducing the debt is a more worthy goal than funding the federal government in general. They even take credit cards. (Slogan: Increase Your Own Debt to Pay Off Ours! … maybe not.)

Anyway, I thought it was neat.
