But look. Mortgages, auto loans, and student loans are not as nearly close to credit cards as the designer of the graph implies. There are two different Y-axes! Student loans are between 50 and 100 million, not between 300 and 400 million.

My internet connection was down but now it’s back up so I will catch up on the last few days of Pokemon fakes I’ve missed. Thanks for reading!
