Baku. 21 February. REPORT.AZ/ As the US national debt reaches $22 trillion, one man has an idea to bring that number down slightly.
Ian Hammond has started a Change.org petition calling for the US to sell the state of Montana to Canada for $1 trillion, and the idea is attracting a lot of attention.
The petition has garnered over 11,500 signatures as of Wednesday evening, and Hammond has continued to raise the signature goal as it keeps surpassing each one. The current goal is 15,000 signatures.
The petition makes the case that “We have too much debt and Montana is useless,” adding, “Just tell them [Montana] has beavers or something.”
