Mind-numbing is the incurred debt of the U.S. since Obama became president

The most startling news released Friday about the Obama administration’s mishandling of the American people’s business is not Obamacare, Benghazi, “Fast and Furious” or even the IRS scandal.

It’s the incurred debt this White House has “managed” to add to the U.S. government.

The statistics do not lie.

Since President Barack Obama took office on January 20, 2009, the debt has increased an incredible $6.666 trillion, according to the latest numbers released by the U.S. Treasury Department.

The total U.S. government debt before January 20, 2009 was $10,626,877,048,913.08, according to the Treasury Department’s Bureau of the Public Debt.

As of Jan. 31, 2014, the latest day reported, the debt was $17,293,019,654,983.61. That is an increase of $6,666,142,606,070.53 since Obama’s first inauguration.

The actual total debt of the United States did not exceed $6.666 trillion until July 2003. In a bit more than five years the Obama administration, the U.S. has accumulated as much new debt as it did in its first 227 years, according to CNS.

The numbers are mind-numbing to anyone paying attention.
