As the national debt tops $13 trillion for the first time (a grim milestone, indeed), a reminder of the GWB and BHO contributions to the mess:
Since the beginning of the 2000?s, the national debt has increased by $7,274,735,146,661.64, more in a period of ten years than in the previous 211 year history of the Republic.
Obama's share of that? So far, $2,423,949,411,973.89 in 499 days. Or over $4.8 billion in debt growth per day.
Under President Bush? Debt growth was at over $1.6 billion per day. Now, that $1.6 billion isn't a good number, but it's better than the $4.8 billion per day under Obama.
The really astonishing part is the 10 year/211 year comparison. And some people say they don't understand the rise of the tea party movement.
