    Default Woman leaves $1.1M estate to pay down national debt

    Woman leaves entire estate to pay down national debt

    Created: 1/20/2006 7:52 AM MST - Updated: 1/20/2006 7:52 AM MST

    FINDLAY, Ohio (AP) - The federal government is reaping a $1.1 million windfall from the estate of an Ohio woman, but the money comes with specific instructions.

    Margaret Taylor's will says the government has to use her fortune to help pay down the national debt.

    A spokesman for the Treasury Department says it may be their largest donation ever.

    Taylor died in November at age 98. She told her family that she planned to use her money to help people, but didn't reveal her plans.

    The executor of her will says he tried to talk Taylor out of giving her money to the government, but she wouldn't listen.

    Attorney Tom Drake says Taylor was a staunch Democrat who believed the national debt should be paid off.

    What a waste. 1.1 Million won't even make a small scratch in the debt, and that amount will just be added back in within days.

    If she wanted to help people, donate that money to a charity.

    I agree, whatta waste.

    Maybe she was too set in her ways (senile) to listen.

    Dumb.

    So how long after you post that $1.1 mil is it back up to where it was?

    2 minutes? 30 seconds?

    Interesting reaction. Do y'all think that the national debt isn't repayable? My first thought was, "thanks!"

    My first thought was what a idiot.

    My second thought was her family must be pissed.

    My third thought was the money could have had a immediate impact on someone like a homeless person, a person with medcial bills etc etc.

    My first was 'idiot', now I think it's 'dumbass'.

    The national debt exists to enslave future generations to excessive taxation. You can have it now, but you've got to pay for it later (and pay we will).

    My first thought was 'What did this lady's family do to piss her off so badly as to screw them out of 1.1 million?'

    Exactly. The money will probably go into some beaurocrat's pocket to help pay for his boat.
