Staggering when you think about it:
When President Bush took office, the national debt was $5.7 trillion. Now it is $10.6 trillion -- and Congress voted in October to raise the debt ceiling to $11.3 trillion, the seventh such hike since President Bush to office and the second since last July. If, as is quite likely, we reach the new ceiling by January 20, the outgoing President will have managed to amass more debt than all of his predecessors combined.
And you will pay for it - in taxes or inflation and probably both. The amount of damage one man has been able to inflict on this country's future and the world is truly amazing.
