I love these websites that are actually the authority on information . Information that many argue about because they do not go to the source but rather quote a third party as if it was the last word.
We have heard many allege the amount that the Obama administration has increased the debt of the US and apologists trying to say that it really is not that large.
Well , a US Treasury Department website provides the debt numbers as well as providing a lot of other valuable information .
In January 2009 , the time that Obama took over as President the debt of the US stood at $10,632,080,000,000.
Last month , January , 2016 , 7 years later , the debt stood at $19,012,828,000,000.
President Obama’s term ends January 2017.
