Obama's Out Of Control Debt Problem

From USA Today's David Jackson:

The debt has grown more under President Obama in less than one term than it did under President George W. Bush in two terms.

Since taking office on Jan. 20, 2009, the debt under Obama has increased by $4,937,932,854.90, according to Treasury Department figures.

During the Bush years, the national debt went up by $4,899,100,310,608.44.

The total federal debt now exceeds $15.5 trillion.

Obama and aides will no doubt argue that some of that debt stemmed from Bush policies, including tax cuts and the Troubled Asset Relief Program bailout passed in response to the 2008 financial crisis.
