Garbage (Mostly)
7 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If by watching this documentary, you were expecting some evidence that the United Sates is 'Not Broke', you will be sorely disappointed.

The documentary claims closing tax loopholes can bring in $70 Billion in revenue per year. Nowhere is this paltry increase in revenue compared against the massive structural liabilities the United States faces.

U.S. treasury debt is ~$17,300 Billion. U.S. unfunded liabilities are ~$125,415 Billion. Every U.S. person (man, woman, and child) owes about $400,000 each.

The United States has a spending problem - not a revenue problem.

1 star for accurate reporting of corporate tax loopholes. The rest is drivel, untruths, and unsubstantiated claims.
