A lot of students weren't really familiar with the gravity of the national debt situation -- they didn't realize how much money was owed with personal loans with bad credit and how much that worked out per taxpayer. So that was often a big surprise, and we got a really good reaction from students who were happy to learn about that. Many people are just amazed to learn that we are $14 trillion in the red, and that they will be responsible for that at some point in the future, whether it's sooner or later. And often once these students find out about this $14 trillion debt, they're eager for their representatives in Congress to do something about it now before the problem gets worse.
