$8,094,858,367,754.09 In Ten Years
That’s the amount by which the National Debt has increased in the past ten years:
That comes out to an average increase of $809,485,836,775.41 per year, $67,457,153,064.62 per month, $2,216,251,435.39 per day, $92,343,809.81 per hour, and $1,539,063.50. If we were to match this pace over the coming decade, that would put the National Debt at over $ 22 trillion by December 2020, if we don’t get their sooner.
