Dear anyone who uses a household metaphor to describe government finances:

if you just took out a 30-year mortgage, you are now carrying about two to four times the debt:income ratio that the federal government is right now. Also, your interest rate is literally infinity times higher: the federal government is paying an inflation-adjusted -0.8% on most of its debt.

Love,
