Zerohedge ^ | 11-16-11 | Tyler Durden

Posted on 11/16/2011 2:20:19 PM PST by tcrlaf

Too sad for commentary, but here is some math: total US debt has increased by 41.5%, or $4.4 trillion, from $10,626,877,048,913 on January 20, to $15,033,607,255,920, under Obama as president.

(as a reminder the most recently updated debt ceiling is $15.194 trillion)

If we split the tab, that's just $48,100 for every man, woman, and child legally in America today....

Let’s assume that Christ was born 2041 years ago. If you spent 1 million dollars a day, every day for 2041 years you would have ONLY spent 744 billion dollars!! And our debt is a staggering FIFTEEN TRILLION! It will take about 45,000 years spending 1 million a day to get to 15 trillion.

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."

~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006

If you are a TAXPAYER, your share of the debt is now $1,034,000.

You’ll be paying by credit card, right?

This government sent us down into country killing septic tank of debt for the next half dozen generations, while at the same time, rolled out the red carpet for tens of millions of low wage illegals...If this wasn't enough, they winked and nodded as big biz, Wall Street insiders and the bank mobsters off shored tens of hundreds of thousands of American jobs and companies..

They told us free trade was good for us, while printing trillions in counterfeit money.

Hard to believe the people in D.C. have the balls to do interviews, or even smile...Hard to believe most all of them have not been prosecuted, imprisoned and held directly accountable for the the intentional destruction of America.

This figure is too high by a factor of 10.

“If we split the tab, that’s just $48,100 for every man, woman, and child legally in America today.... “

$333,350 for every taxpayer

And the higher it gets the faster it grows.

And our debt is a staggering FIFTEEN TRILLION! It will take about 45,000 years spending 1 million a day to get to 15 trillion.

Is that with or without Interest ?

Ms muawiyah has suggested this is not big deal because the federal government can back its debts with assets.

bewahahahaha..

I didn’t say it’s not a big deal. Don’t put words in my keyboard.

Oh, Okay, it’s a big deal now...Or maybe slightly larger than a moderate sized deal.

Got it!

It's like a mortgage ~ we still live in the house though.

BTW, over $6 trillion of that debt is Social Security. I'd be happy to take it out in guaranteed rental in the main lobby of one of the government's lodges at the Grand Canyon.
