Where did Richard Burr learn math ?

There was a line in Richard Burr's latest commercial that I simply don't understand. His math just doesn't add up. He makes a comment that we pay $5 Trillion in interest expense. Now granted, he doesn't give any indication as to what period of time he's speaking about. But he makes it sound like our nation spends $5 Trillion a year in interest. Huh? Where did this man learn math?

Our federal government is $14 Trillion in debt. And, by the way, about $6 to $7 Trillion of that is owned by various governmental organizations like state and local governments, the social security administration, etc. Unless we're paying the mob for our borrowings, it's pretty darn hard to pay $5 Trillion in interest on $14 Trillion in debt.

Some of us wish Richard Burr would stick to the facts and stop all the scare tactics so common among the ignorant people in Washington DC.

North Carolina deserves better than Republican Senator Richard Burr.
