"The couple sends those donations to the national treasury on the condition that the money goes toward reducing the national debt"

LOL. Lets see the audit and find out where the money went. Good luck with that.

Smart couple. They open a not-for-profit organization, deduct their home office space, keep some of that money for their payroll when folks could just go directly to the government website to donate. Yep, smart entrepeneurs.

Might as well donate bail money to criminals too. Maybe donate jackboots to neo-nazi groups or pay an extra 4 bucks a month for the "privilege" of paying your bills through automatic withdrawals.

Just what will the govt do with the money ? We have ALOT of corruption in washington D.C & they cant be trusted to do the right thing. These people & others who donate should know that. I would donate my hard earned money to a worthy charity before i gave it to the united states government.
