Below is a summarized graphic of Senator Barack Obama’s comments for the Congressional record on March 16, 2006 on behalf of voting against raising the debt ceiling:
The Congress was debating whether or not to raise the debt ceiling to $9,000,000,000,000. It is currently $16,700,000,000,000. What was that you were saying about a “failure of leadership” President Obama, $7,700,000,000,000 dollars later?
