    In going to assume the rate is similar to a Treasury Bond (2 - 3%) but I'm not certain of this. I do know as our debt rating slips, we will have to increase the interest rate as a matter of economics. The more we are unable or not willing to deal with this debt crisis, the more certainty that out debt rating will decline. The slippery slope will continue. The debt and interest will drag on this economy and we will not return to the days where you graduate from college and have a job. We can see the boomerang factor as the kids graduate from college and they're back home. Is this the future you wanted for your children & grandchildren? BT100dc

    1 year = 0.275%

    5 year = 1.925%

    10 year = 3.125%

    30 year = 4.065%

    I`ve asked several people, and nobody seems to know what the interest rate is.
    Thanks for your responses. Must not be put out for public!
