Can't blame Obama for that since you also claim the federal government cannot create jobs. As for the trillions spent, that was to prevent us from having a 30 year depression created by the Republicans. You guys are irresponsible.
Ignorant...30yr depression lol really? And Government can't create lasting private sector jobs true but it can create an atmosphere conducive to investment, Entrepreneurship and growth or it can create the current dampened down atmosphere of uncertainty.
The people that voted for change, now have it. NO JOB, HIGHER TAXES, HIGHTER HEALTH INSURANCE COST AND ABOUT TO HAVE THEIR CHECKS CUT OFF...........................HOW IS IT GOING FOR YOU NOW?
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Less than two months into President Obama's second term, new numbers show the national debt increased by more than $6 trillion since he took office.
It's the largest increase to date under any U.S. president. During the eight-year presidency of George W. Bush, the debt soared by $4.9 trillion.
Without fanfare, the Bureau of Public Debt at the Treasury Department quietly posted its daily debt report showing the total public debt of the U.S. government topped $16.687 trillion. (To be exact: $16,687,289,180,215.37)
On January 20, 2009, the day Mr. Obama took office, the debt stood at $10.626 trillion. The latest posting reflects an increase of over $6 trillion.
What will the debt be by 2016? lol
