Obama's National Debt Tops $14 Trillion

January 3, 2011
Posted by Mark Knoller

The latest posting today of the National Debt shows it has topped $14 trillion for the first time.

The U.S. Treasury website today reported that as of last Friday, the last day of 2010, the National Debt stood at $14,025,215,218,708.52.

It took just 7 months for the National Debt to increase from $13 trillion on June 1, 2010 to $14 trillion on Dec. 31. It also means the debt is fast approaching the statutory ceiling $14.294 trillion set by Congress and signed into law by President Obama last February.

The federal government would have to stop borrowing and might even default on its obligations if Congress fails to increase the Debt Ceiling before the limit is reached.

Some Republicans in the new Congress have said they'll seek to block an increase in the Debt Ceiling unless a plan is in place to significantly reduce federal spending and unfunded government liabilities on entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare.

The WH wants it raised but Obama himself Voted Against Raising the Debt Limit as a Senator.

Hypocrisy Much?

Google Maps are easy to use if you don't know where San Bruno is.

Note that it is not San Francisco, and thus, has its own mayor.

Just an FYI for the early-afternoon boozehounds.
