"Obama’s Spending Plans Will Nearly Double the National Debt--White House Leaked the News Late on Friday"

Monday, August 24, 2009


In news leaked late Friday to the Reuters news agency, the White House conceded that the national debt will increase by $9 trillion over the next ten years, nearly doubling a national debt that now stands at $11.67 trillion.

Until now, the White House had been estimating that the national debt would increase by $7.108 trillion between 2010 and 2019. On Friday evening, Reuters reported that an unnamed senior administration official was saying that a report due from the Office of Management and Budget on Tuesday would indicate that the debt would actually increase by $9 trillion during that period, almost $2 trillion more than the administration had previously estimated.

Since the beginning of the republic in the late 18th century, the U.S. government has accumulated a total of $11.67 trillion in debt. In the next decade, under the budget plans the Obama administration has in mind, that debt will almost double to about $20.67 trillion.

The administration is planning to run an average annual deficit of about $900 billion—or almost a trillion dollars—for each of the next ten years.

Until this year, according to historical budget tables published by the White House Office of Management and Budget, the largest annual budget deficit the U.S. government ever ran was in fiscal 2008, when the deficit was $458.5 billion.

The average deficits the Obama administration is now planning to run in each of the next ten years will now amost double that.

Wild Thing's comment......

Obama is simultaneously printing the US dollar into oblivion (foreign investments in US debt have fallen off a cliff, graphically, in the past couple of months) nationalizing private enterprise, bailing out the banksters, and preparing to tax the hell out of every man, woman and child in this country, and doling out billions to his political supporters (ACORN, etc.).

President Reagan must be rolling in his grave at what is happening.

Reagan increased defense spending, especially on high tech strategic weaponry like stealth and missile defense. What makes that spending so different is that

1) Defense spending was used to topple the Soviet Union, which when accomplished, would free up a huge chunk of spending

2) The defense spending flowed into high paying engineering and US-based manufacturing (US citizens and companies). This floated a lot of boats and increased tax revenues proportionately.

This is completely different than throwing money down a Rat hole, never to produce any velocity or multipliers in economic expansion.

The redistribution of the wealth is certainly working out well for obama. He is paying back his voters and supporters. He is also breaking America and trashing the US dollar. We are buying socialism. Yes, obama's plans are working out. He is even getting ready to fund and man his citizen security forces.

Buy more ammo!

Those are mild figures. I've seen much worse into the Trillions of dollars. and the interest is indeed, now, about 26 Billion per month. The National Debt clock is at 11+ Trillion dollars obama has expanded the deficit to 9 Trillion dollars. We have become a nations of debtors.

This is just the beginning. there are almost 56 Trillion in unfunded liabilities, like Medicare.
When all of this debt is spread out to every citizen it comes out to over 200,000 dollars a peace.

If China calles in its debt we are in deep weeds. But I think this is obama's plan to bankrupt the country and declare Capitalism dead, it failed and institute a Socialist form of government.

The problem is we can't stop it all we can do is sit by and watch our country drown in a sea of debt.

Damn right, buy Ammo.

Went through my files and pulled out the following three bumper stickers for my RED truck:

Too bad my liberal neighbors are p*ssed. They still have their Obama bumper stickers on their NEW cars. Should see the frowns on their pusses when I do a drive by at 20 mph!!!

Tom, every word you said is absolutely
exactly positively true.

Lives mean nothing to Obama,
money, our Constitution, our troops,
our contry...nothing means anything to
him except his agenda to destroy our
country and all of us along with it.

Mark, that is what I don't get, what if
China did call in the debt. Basically they
own us now with how much money we owe them.
Will our troops have to be under their military
and what else could happen. This should
concern everyone how dangerous this debt
could be.
