It is probably uncool for me to start off recommending a video I haven't seen yet, but too bad. I will.
One of my favorite movies to show around the time of the federal budget movie is I.O.U.S.A. You can get it on netflix, and it holds up to the stand of time. If anything, it really shows how bad things have gotten since it's release in 2007.
I.O.U.S.A. really focuses in on the federal side of our budget woes. This lovely film highlights the inequity between the classes, picking up where the teapartiers and Occupy Wallstreet left off. Except, it's an academic who is doing the talking. Which sounds great to me.
So, I am always trolling for something a little bit more... relevant. And I found it. And now I have to go to the movie theater.
