The Government Shut Down Encourages Consumerism And Credit Addiction- America’s New $100 Bill

You were too overwhelmed with  dodging your creditors, and Keeping Up With With The Kardashians to know they made a brand new $100 bill.  3.5 billion of them  have been made, and 3.5 billion more will likely be counterfeited.  The government tries tirelessly to prevent scoundrels from duplicating the cash, but it never works.

Heldrich Center for Workforce Development ) co-author Carl Van Horn said in a statement.

Have you lost your job, or do you know someone who has?  Will you go broke on one of Apple’s new technology gadgets, or Lebron’s new tennis shoes, anyway?  What will you buy with your very first new $100 bill?
