Congress and Remedial Algebra

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - Let's see the responses.

Subject: Don't Raise Debt Ceiling — Learn Math!

Body: The debt ceiling means Congress can't borrow any more money. It does not mean they will default on their debt. In fact, it stops the total interest payments from being larger because we won't be accumulating any more debt. Congress doesn't need to borrow money to pay interest on... borrowed money. The government gets enough funds from income tax to pay off the interest on the debt.

I'm concerned that Congress doesn't know how to do basic math. I wrote this article, , and I think it's important for everyone to read it to understand the effects that government has on America and its people, and the negligence that Congress has, along with the lies peddled by Congress.

In the article, I challenge every Congressperson to play my free videogame, Jessie Go Jr. Remedial Algebra. We hope everyone can beat Jessie Go Jr. Remedial Algebra, since it is very basic math that every Congressperson should be able to perform. If not, they aren't qualified for the job and should resign. Math is a very important part of running a country, after all, and Congress should take some principles of running a business to running the government.

Why Is It Important: The government should not be ran by those who cannot do math. Therefore, it's important that Congress understands how to do such math.

I also wrote to the President, calling it a "First Family" subject and adding,

That includes you, Mr. President, as a former Senator yourself. You did once say, 'The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government can not pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that "the buck stops here." Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.'
Shortly after the e-mails were sent out, Senate Majority leader Harry Reid had this to say about Senator Ted Cruz,
"He might be able to work a calculus problem better than I can. But he can't legislate better than I can."
What this means is that upon receiving the link to Jessie Go Jr. Remedial Algebra, Harry Reid sat on the Senate floor and tried to beat it. He must've been so frustrated and inept that he confused Algebra for Calculus. At that point, Ted Cruz swooped in, beat the problem, and perhaps completed the entire rest of the game. Did you know that you have to play the game twice in order to get to the true final boss? I have no doubt Senator Ted Cruz did so. And Harry Reid is jealous.

I don't know how you determine legislative ability, Senator Reid, but I think math ability should be valued in the Senate. 

No word on if the House has seen the game yet. If they haven't, that's pretty disappointing. Although perhaps Ted Cruz told them about it. In the meantime, Barack Hussein Obama definitely never responded. So much for the most transparent presidency in the history of America. KoopaTV is leading the charge in getting your poll numbers to the worst you've ever had. You're welcome.

Stay in school. Math is important.
