Half these debtors owe under $1350 pp. (And likely some of the debts aren't even owed!) Very sad for an individual unable to pay off such a sum over, say, a year's time or so, but as a national issue, not such a crisis.

I also wonder how many of those are from people who just don't keep track of paying their bills and therefore just don't pay them on time. Some people are really flakey, and if you're an responsible, organized person it can be surprising just what nit-wits some people are about simple things like bills.
