As they discuss and promote their new slogan...."Forward".
The national debt tops 16 Trillion dollars.
That is, you realize, $136,260 per household.
The current debt (as of Friday) is $16,015,769,788,215.80
Look at that number again.
It has grown from an (already horrific) 10.6 Trillion dollars at the end of 2008 to 16 Trillion today, less than 4 years later..
4 years. 6 trillion dollars. And for what?
Now, if we had actually gotten something for those dollars that we spent (but did not actually, you know, have), it might have been, if not a good thing, at least worth the larger debt. But what do we have for this additional 60% increase in an already terrible crushing debt?
Nothing. Obama and his ilk have enriched a lot of people most of whom are friends and campaign contributors... But what did the country get?
Yeah, I usually like dinner and at least a movie first too.
