US Debt Tops $13 Trillion & Increases $4.9 Billion a Day – 3 Times the Bush Average

Thanks Barack.
Obama’s trillion dollar Stimulus failed.
Barack Obama and the Pelosi Democrats tripled the national deficit last year by nearly a trillion dollars – something unheard of in our nation’s history.

Nice work Pelosi, Reid and Obama.

For the first time in American history the US debt topped $13 trillion today thanks to the out of control spending under the current Obama-Pelosi regime.
The Washington Times reported, via Drudge:

The federal government is now $13 trillion in the red, the Treasury Department reported Wednesday, marking the first time the government has sunk that far into debt and putting a sharp point on the spending debate on Capitol Hill.

Calculated down to the exact penny, the debt totaled $13,050,826,460,886.97 as of Tuesday, leaping nearly $60 billion since Friday, the previous day for which figures were released.

At $13 trillion, that figure has risen by $2.4 trillion in about 500 days since President Obama took office, or an average of $4.9 billion a day. That’s almost three times the daily average of $1.7 billion under the previous administration, and led Republicans on Wednesday to place blame squarely at the feet of Mr. Obama and his fellow Democrats.

    Cloward-Priven on the march: Spend money, make people dependent upon the government, declare unilateral rule. That’s what this inept elitist cabal running Zero wants.

    Before any idiot liberal troll squawks about President Bush’s deficits.

    Nitwit Obama’s average daily addition to the national debt is three times higher that our wonderful Dubya’s.

    Debt growth was $1.6 billion per day. Now, that isn’t good, but it’s better than $4.8 billion per day under useless idiot Obama.

    Now ask yourself this: Does the government have a revenue problem, meaning that we’re not taxed enough? Or does the government have a spending problem?

    Think about this. Bush saved Iraqi marshes. Moron Obama is destroying US marshes at three times the cost.

    I’ve got the 97 cents. Who do I send it too, the Chinese?

    Couldn’t I just buy an egg roll with it?

    When Oilbama promised that America would get change, he meant pocket change.

    You owe over $42,000 on the national debt.

    And you, too.

    And you.

    And YOU!

  • There is a real similarity between the hemorrhaging oil in the gulf and this hemorrhaging debt, both are part of killing the economy of the U.S. to make us easy prey for Islamists and the left. A broke America is a weak America.

    I think we all should create billing statements made out to Obomby, “Piece of Pie” Michelle, Bill Ayers and everyone else tangibly or philosophically connected with this administration and send them to them – signed Uncle Sam or We the People of the United States of America.

    We could bill each of them for their percentage of this mess and even propose a payment schedule based upon their assests and current/calculated earnings.

    Naaahhh. I’m going to stick with the 97 cent I offered above. I didn’t ask these looting, amoral cretins to spend all this money, so I don’t owe a dime. As a matter of fact, about half the national debt should be paid back to us.

    Reckless, Feckless, Relentless Incompetence

    Repeat this over and over in your head every time you think Obama needs us to cut him a break… that he’s doing the best he can with what that Bush fellow left behind for him to deal with: in 500 days, Obama has extended our debt almost 5 billion dollars a day as he continues to fail his Country. We’ve certainly seen none of our problems “solved” since he’s been in office…no return on our great-grand childrens’ investment. At what point does this agenda and this Congress, and the incompetent leadership running both, stop the bleeding? OUR bleeding.

    Pardon the inquiry, but when are you going to update this frequently-used chart? We’re 8 months into FY10, and the chart depicts some point about a year ago. Perhaps you are not showing it because the message shown would be worse?
