National Debt Ends 2010 By Topping $14 Trillion
There was a nice little New Year’s Eve present from the Department Of The Treasury that you might not have heard of:
Some milestone’s worth noting:
- The national debt passed the $ 13,000,000,000,000 mark on June 3, 2010. It took 212 days for an additional trillion dollars to be added to the national debt.
- Before that, it last passed a milestone number on November 17, 2009 when it hit $ 12,000,000,000,000. It took only 198 days for an additional trillion dollars to be added to the national debt.
- Since Barack Obama took the Oath of Office, the national debt has increased from $ 10,626,877,048,913.08 to $ 14,025,215,218,708.52. That’s an increase of $ 3,398,338,169,795.44 in 710 days.
Happy New Year !
