US debt surges $328 billion in single day, surpassing $17 trillion for first time
Oct 21, 2013

This milestone happened over the weekend and not one liberal around here has even brought it up. I would think you would be proud of President Obama for this. You can add it to his list of accomplishments!


This is from another thread I posted abot Obama's spending habbits:

Barack Obama / Biden:

Took office / Total debt: $10,627 billion

Thru 10/21/13 (5 years, 9 months, 1 day)

Total debt: $17,040 billion

Percent change: +62% so far.

Barack Obama still has 2 years, 2 months and 30 days left to go. (1167 days, yes, I'm counting)

The US National Debt Clock (which rolled past the 17 trillion dollar mark over the weekend), has this cool feature in the upper right corner called "Debt Clock Time Machine". Now it won't let you enter custom dates, but as of October 21, 2017, 9 months after Barack Obama leaves office, the US National Debt according to will be $20,706 billion.

If you give Obama credit for January 21st through October 21, 2017 the US National Debt (not the budget deficit liberals), will be right at $19,747 billion. I've been predicting $20 trillion for years, but I guess I'm a little over.

Again, the numbers for Barack Obama / Biden (Based on 8 years)

Took office / Total debt: $10,627 billion

Left office / Total debt: $19,747 billion

Percent change: +86%

US NAtional Debt Clock, I just checked it, It's still going up!!!
