Nope. That is 58 TRILLION Dollars of total National Debt, not the short term 16 TRILLION Dollar barrowing smokescreen.
Barry whines a lot about the mess he “inherited”. Imagine the mess the slob who runs in 2016 is going to “inherit” from Barry. I can’t see how anybody in their right mind would want to run for POTUS in 2016. They’d have to be nuts.
It is not easy to underswtand what 16 trillion dollars is.
Maybe this will help.
The speed of light is about 186,282 miles per second.
There are 31,622,400 seconds in a year.
Thus in one year, at the speed of light, the distance covered is 5,890,683,916,800 miles.
5.89 trillion miles.
SO at the speed of light, the 16 trillion dollar debt is equal to 2.715 light years... at $1 per mile, that is.
That will get you more than halfway to the nearest star, as far as that goes.
It is a large number indeed...
