Alpe d'Huez said:Well, to hear the conservatives talk, they'd say Reagan's debt was Carter's fault, and Clinton benefited from sound policies by Reagan and Bush, etc.
But this can of course be flipped. I mean, how much of the current economic situation is Obama or Bush's fault? Depends on who you ask.
January 31, 2009 The US National Debt was $10.632 Trillion
September 30, 2011 The US National Debt was $14.790 Trillion
Adding 4.1T to an existing 10.6T adds up to more than twice the 16% listed... but don't let facts get in the way of the narrative.
