The debt of the federal government, which is normally subject to a legal limit, jumped by $409 billion in the month of October, according to the U.S. Treasury.

That equals approximately $3,567 for each household in the United States, and is the second-largest one month jump in the debt in the history of the country.

In the continuing resolution deal sealed by President Barack Obama and the Republican congressional leadership last month, the legal limit on the federal debt was suspended until February 7 of next year.

At the close of business on Sept. 30, 2013, the last day of fiscal 2013, the federal debt subject to limit stood at $16,699,396,000,000. At the close of business on Oct. 31, 2013, the first month of fiscal 2014, the debt subject to limit stood at approximately $17,108,378,000,000.

Thus, during October, the debt increased $408,982,000,000--or about $3,567 for each of the 114,663,000 households the Census Bureau estimates there are in the United States.

From May 17, when the Treasury was approaching the previous debt limit, until Oct. 17, when Congress enacted the CR suspending the debt limit until February, the Treasury reported that the debt closed each business day at $16,699,396,000,000--or about $25 million below the then-legal-limit of 16,699,421,095,673.60.

wonderer, you sound like a Tea Billy Republican. Stiff as a board-no sense of humor-dry as a potato chip-arrogant-and most of all JUDGEMENTAL!

From the way you talk, your nothing but the same as you accuse me!! What did you bring to the discussion table other than your judgmental opinion?

Comrade is posting under so many names and lies so much in Topix he cant keep up with his own habitual lies.
