On average, how much per year does interest on the national debt cost every household in the U.S.?

Correct Answer $1,000 to $5,000 Tell Me More

In 2017, the interest on the national debt was $456 billion, or $3,610 for every household in the United States. Measured as a portion of federal revenues, interest on the national debt is currently low compared to previous decades, because the average interest rate is much lower than historical norms. However, the Congressional Budget Office "anticipates that those payments will increase considerably as interest rates return to more typical levels."

The Great "U" Of Rockingham County Come 2024:

Drop a straight line from Betts Road to Cross Keys. Draw a straight line west to Bridgewater. Draw a straight line north to Hinton.

There "U" have it. Harrisonburg's future tax base and the plans for a third high school. Think it can't happen?

In anticipation of "return to school and college", post radar speed indicator signs for those areas. Peach Grove Avenue from Stonespring intersection to Port Republic Road of particular interest as drivers "jockey" at excessive speeds to "beat" one another to the merge lane.

Hanging on both sides of the courthouse as you drive downtown are the huge obnoxious banners for a Shenandoah valley gay pride event. I don't know the criteria for placing banners on the courthouse property but this offends me to no end. I have heard many people reiterate that this is extremely offensive to them and they resent that they have to be exposed to this kind of material on their own city property. While this issue disturbs and offends me I respect the right of people to organize and execute this event however the promotion of this on city property is dead wrong. Leaving it up offends many people, removing it only means that a private entity has to seek conventional means to promote their event. The city would not allow other sexually themed events to hang on court square, there should not be an exception for this. It's trash and hurts the city.

The stretch from Mosby Road to Pleasant Valley Road, both ways: Bicyclists and Joggers are using or running in the wrong lane; autos are routinely exceeding 50 miles per hour especially at rush hour; autos are driving in the turning lane for excessive distances; or recklessly pulling around others trying to merge from the turning lane.

Modern science indicates that ingesting fluoride is ineffective at reducing tooth decay and harmful to health. Over 4700 professionals, including hundreds of MD's and dentists, urge the end of water fluoridation. See their statement here: http://fluorideaction.net/researchers/professionals-statement

It is foolish to require every business in the city to have a bike rack. Bike rack should be up to the individual business as to where they install them or not. As a bike rider, it seems as though the area in the city that might benefit from the racks is in the center of the city, not out by the new Alternative Education Center near MTC. Requiring a bike rack at that location is totally foolish and a waste of money. Let the businesses decide.

Idea: Recycling

Realized there's a lot of mail, papers, books, etc.. from colleges and high school and the nearest paper recycling place is in Dayton. We need a paper recycling place in the city, it will shows us that we are going green.
