Living in the US? Or concerned about the US Economy? You'd better well be. This is how much debt the United States have racked up over the years. Plus your share to pay it off. Good luck.

The USA Debt Clock

And remember, kids. It's on the internet, so it must be true!

Oh hon, I remember as a child going into NYC and seeing the National Debt Clock, though then it was a green board with actual lights clicking away. We've been screwed for ages - but then again, per person, the national debt has a long way to go before it reaches the likes of Japan, Italy, Greece, etc. I bet its soared past France and Germany finally, since the data I'm looking at is from one to three years old, depending on the nation. The Netherlands sit about 2/3rds up on the list (46/120), the USA about 3/4ths (31/120).

Nevertheless, the debt is staggering - but when taken relatively, there's a lot of company out there in similar straits. :/

What I find amusing, is how Clinton actually managed to BUY BACK some of that debt, yet still have a surplus of 580 billion. Everyone said it was a fluke, a lark, and even a lie.

Yet no less than 6 months after Bush is in office, the entire surplus is gone, and after a year we were about 120 billion in the hole.

And Bush is supposed to have been AGAINST big spending.

Democrats may be "Tax and Spend", but they always spend it HERE, at HOME. Republicans take it all for themselves or their pet projects overseas.
