Hey, They're Only Numbers... Right?

Just some numbers. You be the judge of either how significant OR inconsequential they may be.

( In the 39 months since Barack Obama took the oath of office as president of the United States, the federal government’s debt has increased by $5,027,761,476,484.56.

Although he has served less than a term, Obama is now the first American president to see the federal government's debt increase by more than $5 trillion during his time in office.

During the full eight years that George W. Bush served as president, the federal government's debt increased by $4,899,100,310,608.44. (Rising from $5,727,776,738,304.64 to $10,626,877,048,913.08.)

The $5,027,761,476,484.56 that the debt has increased during Obama's presidency equals $16,043.39 for every one of the 313,385,295 people the Census Bureau now estimates live in the United States. {Read More}

Banana's seem ever closer to home...

  1. This is all a direct result of the President's policies. And he has refused calls to cut waste spending.

    Instead, he has threatened only greed as a solution (the government swiping more of our money), but this is counter-productive, as the cost of further overtaxation would be a kick in the teeth of the economy, and a new recession with a significant reduction in federal revenues.

    1. Indeed. It does play well with the President's base though. We'll have to wait until Nov. to learn just how well.

  2. I can see the bananas from my house.
