President Obama: Let's Tackle Financial Challenges

1 Minute Read

President Obama has declared the month of April, “National Financial Capability Month.” Awkward wording, sure, but at least the spirit is right.

In the official statement, Obama 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.

Well, you know the Dave Ramsey team supports that. But we’re not sure the federal government is in a strong position to teach anyone about anything related to responsible money management.

They might be an awful role model when it comes to handling money, but they have a huge platform. Maybe, this month, more people will connect with the message than the messenger.
