The U. S. National Debt Clock

Every Saturday I check on and record the national debt. It is interesting to look back from time to time to see how it has changed (increased)through out the year. Today the U.S. National Debt Clock says the national debt is, $7,946,194,900,458.22. It says the estimated population of the United States is now 297,065,041. So if every United States citizen including new-born children would write a check for $26,749.01 the national debt would be wiped out. It should be interesting to see how Katrina will effect those numbers over the next couple of months. Please continue to pray for the storms victims.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

The national debt is a real tragedy, I don't know how or when we will ever pay it off but I know that we are only making things worse not better with our deficit spending.
