When are we going to get a business savvy president that will fix our debt problem? We need the fix ASAP!
The U.S. national debt is creeping up again, after holding steady for the last few months thanks to the annual flood of individual and corporate tax receipts.
Total government debt hit a record $19.38 trillion on Thursday, up nearly $98 billion from the day before. It’s the first time it has ever exceeded $19.3 trillion.
The debt will soar higher still in the coming months, and is expected to approach $20 trillion by the time President Obama leaves office.
