$20 Trillion Man: National Debt Nearly Doubles During Obama Presidency

Blacklisted News – Washington Times

When President Obama signs into law the new two-year budget deal Monday, his action will bring into sharper focus a part of his legacy that he doesn’t like to talk about: He is the $20 trillion man.

Mr. Obama’s spending agreement with Congress will suspend the nation’s debt limit and allow the Treasury to borrow another $1.5 trillion or so by the end of his presidency in 2017. Added to the current total national debt of more than $18.15 trillion, the red ink will likely be crowding the $20 trillion mark right around the time Mr. Obama leaves the White House.

When Mr. Obama took over in January 2009, the total national debt stood at $10.6 trillion. That means the debt will have very nearly doubled during his eight years in office, and there is much more debt ahead with the abandonment of “sequestration” spending caps enacted in 2011.

Congress and the president have just agreed to undo one of the only successful fiscal restraint mechanisms in a generation,” said Pete Sepp, president of the National Taxpayers Union. “The progress on reducing spending and the deficit has just become much more problematic.”

  1. “what?” ,say the jews….”but you have to pay it back”. “we didnt spend it”says the national. “but they are your ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES”sez the jew.

  2. At this point an unpayable debt is a good thing in my opinion. Let the Evil Empire go bankrupt and collapse. Then maybe we can be free again.
