Wearing a track suit, black cap, and dollar-sign medallion, Munasifi tosses dollars around as he raps: “$14 trillion in debt, but yo we ain’t go no qualms. Dropping $100 bills and million dollar bombs.”
He continues: “Social Security surplus? Oh guess what? It’s gone!” “I got my hands on everything like Dominique Strauss-Kahn.”
The part-time rapper joined forces with libertarian magazine Reason to create the video in which he urges the US government to resolve the debt crisis that threatens to downgrade the dollar’s credit rating and endanger millions of routine payments to Americans.
Following a Republican decision to postpone a vote on raising the debt ceiling, Congress now only has four days to meet a deadline set by Timothy Geithner, the Treasury Secretary, to raise the national borrowing limit or risk defaulting. [via The Telegraph]
