Knowing I’d believe
You knew you’d never keep”
The day after Thanksgiving, Black Friday, the U.S. Treasury increased the net debt of the U.S. by a casual $24,327,048,384.38. As CNSNews points out, that is $211.69 for each household - all 114,916,000 of them.
At the close of business last Wednesday, according to the Treasury, the national debt was $16,283,161,895,179.85. On Thanksgiving, the Treasury took the day off and did no borrowing. But on Friday, the Treasury increased the debt of the United States to $16,307,488,943,564.23. That was a one-day increase of $24,327,048,384.38.
Remember when Obama said that Romney’s math just wouldn’t work?
When President Barack Obama first took office on Jan. 20, 2009, the national debt stood at $10,626,877,048,913.08. Since then, it has increased by $5,680,611,894,651.15.
That means that since Obama has been president, the national debt has increased by about $49,432.73 per household.
