A Limerick on day after Thanksgiving leftovers: A 24 Billion dollar increase in Federal Debt.


A Limerick on Thanksgiving Day leftovers: A 24 Billion dollar increase in Federal Debt.
The U.S. Treasury increased the net debt of the United States $24,327,048,384.38 on the day after Thanksgiving, which equals approximately $211.69 for each of the nation’s 114,916,000 households. (CNSNEWS)
In August 2011, the debt ceiling — the amount of money the federal government is allowed to borrow — was raised by $2.4 trillion, to $16.394 trillion. According to the National Debt Clock, as of Nov. 23, the total debt was nearing the limit, at $16.3 trillion. You also could think of it as about $51,000 per person in the US.

A decadent town on Potomac,
where cronyism fills up its stomach.
It is borrow and spend;
print more money to lend.
Our government has run amok.

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot
    about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a
    bit, but other than that, this is magnificent blog.

    An excellent read. I will definitely be back.
