And when the administration that has perpetuated an insurmountable debt and whose own budget is over two months late wants to give you financial advice, you should… slowly turn and walk away:

(CNSNews.com) – President Barack Obama, who has increased the national debt by $53,377 per household, has proclaimed April “National Financial Capability Month,” during which his administration will do things such as teach young people “how to budget responsibly.”

“I call upon all Americans to observe this month with programs and activities to improve their understanding of financial principles and practices,” Obama said in an official proclamation released Friday.

“My Administration is dedicated to helping people make sound decisions in the marketplace,” he said.

“Together, we can prepare young people to tackle financial challenges–from learning how to budget responsibly to saving for college, starting a business, or opening a retirement account,” he said.

The “National Financial Capability Month” proclamation can be read on the White House website. That’s even funnier than Charlie Rangel offering tax preparation advice.
