US National Debt Clock

January 6, 2008

Below is a clock counter showing the amount of US National Debt and just how quickly it is increasing. The figure at the time of writing this post is 9.198 Trillion Dollars. An estimate shows that the amount is increasing by about $100,000 dollars every 4 seconds. Just like father time the clock keeps rolling along.

It’s almost hard to imagine this amount of money, I get a headache when I think about it.

Hopefully the new President, whoever it may be, can get some of the huge money being spent on Iraq and Afghanistan and bring it back to the US along with the soldiers.

Maybe the money can be used to create jobs in renewable energy projects to help with global warming and also keep the spending in the US, not other countries.

National Debt Graph 2007 Data

“In 1981 the gross national debt, compared to the nation’s annual income, reached its lowest point since 1931. Despite his claim to hate the debt, Reagan instituted unprecedented peacetime deficit spending. This is not partisan politics, this is straight off the White House web site.”

“As the graph shows, Bush II repeated Reagan’s performance and turned the debt upward again. Bush II’s own Office of Management and Budget provides all the data.”
