I added the US Debt widget on this blog a month or so ago. Since then, I've been keeping an eye on our ever-increasing public debt. The number had been going up at about the same rate each day. Then, on Friday, the debt increased $46 billion in one day. $46 billion. That's real money -- and real theft, $1200 from my family alone.
To monitor the debt better, I check-pointed the amount on the image to the right. Keep an eye as our representatives continue to destroy this nation, billion by billion.
Note: The numbers are as of 11:01 pm on October 17, 2009
