Just for the record:
From 9/30/2000 the National Debt was 5.5. Trillion, and it went to 10 Trillion by 9/30/08. That is a 4.5 Trillion increase in the National Debt in 8 years. That was too much. No Excuse!
From 9/30/2008 the National Debt was 10 Trillion, and it is now at 15.6 Trillion. That is a 5.6 Trillion increase in only a little over 3 years. That is over double the rate of the Bush Administration! That is a disaster! No Excuse! There needs to be a change!
