You mean added to the $13 trillion debt he
inherited from Bush?

Present federal deficit---about $16.9 trillion.

Looks to me like three Republican administrations
were responsible for more debt than Obama has been.
A lot more.

Now go peddle your RW crap on another forum.

Off topic: Another tall tale from Gary, and in relation to a story about a tall mountain. The debt was just at or approaching $10T when Øbama took the keys to the vault.

On topic: 99% of Alaskans already refer to the mountain as Denali, as well as a bunch of tourists who come to visit each year.
