THE RP’s BREAKING NEWS: The Politics of Debt Reduction

A man in Florida certainly gets points for trying, after he willed his home to the federal government to pay down the National Debt. James H. Davidson, Jr. passed away last December at the age of 87 and in his well, left his $1 million home in Coral Gables  to the United States government, with the stipulation that its sale be used to chip away at the deficit. The home sold at auction for $1.175 million, and its contents will be auctioned off next month. Davidson had lived in the 1929 Spanish-style house since he was a teenager. [Miami Herald]
