National Debit

We will build a Ramp Political joke about nat debt

We Read All The Jokes – But Will Someone PLEASE Tell Me What The HELL Is Wrong With The People We Elected To Run This Country!!

An Overview of the United States National Debt

National Debt: The amount is the gross federal debt issued by the United States Department of the Treasury since 1790. It doesn’t include state and local debt, and it doesn’t include the so-called unfunded liabilities of entitlement programs like Social Security and Medicare.

Gross Federal Debt: That’s the gross amount of debt issued by the US Treasury.

Debt held by the public + debt held by federal government accounts = Gross Federal Debt.

The Current Outstanding Public Debt of the United States is: $16,687,289,180,215.37.

Every man, woman and child in the United States currently owes $54,924 for their share of the U.S. public debt.

“The Debt to the Penny and Who Holds it.”

Did you know the U.S. government owes a total of $4.5 trillion (Jan 2011)

The top three country’s are China, Japan and the U.K.

A trillion dollars is so large a number that only politicians can use the term in conversation… probably because they seldom think about what they are really saying. I’ve read that mathematicians do not even use the term trillion!

Here is some perspective on TRILLION:

  • How Much Is One Trillion Dollars
  • A trillion dollars = $1,000,000,000,000.
  • That’s 12 zeroes to the left of the decimal point.
  • A trillion is a million million dollars.
  • A million seconds is 12 days.
  • A billion seconds is 31 years.
  • A trillion seconds is 31,688 years.
  • A million minutes ago was – 1 year, 329 days, 10 hours and 40 minutes ago.
  • A billion minutes ago was just after the time of Christ.
  • A million hours ago was in 1885.
  • A billion hours ago man had not yet walked on earth.

The US Department of State has a budget of $36 billion. With one trillion dollars we could run the State Department for almost 30 years without bothering to earn any interest on the money.

It would take a military jet flying at the speed of sound, reeling out a roll of dollar bills behind it, 14 years before it reeled out one trillion dollar bills.

The Fiscal Cliff is the combination of tax increases (from expiring tax cuts) and across-the-board government spending cuts by US Federal Government. America will, in the media’s terms, “fall over the cliff.” Among other things, it will mean a tax increase the size of which has not been seen by Americans in 60 years.

So Where Is All That Money Going?

The U.S. is providing hundreds of millions of dollars of foreign aid to some of the world’s richest countries – while at the same time borrowing billions back, according to report seen by Congress.

Data from July 2012 Congressional Research Service report.

The United States is the world’s top donor by far and recently has continued to pump around $50 billion in aid to other countries each year.

See where U.S. dollars flow, the government’s website has a handy, interactivemap.

*************************************************

Imagine If

The GOVERNMENT
Gave ‘US’ the Same Support They
Give to Other Countries.

**************************************************

Imagine If…

The GOVERNMENT
Stopped Spending Money We Don’t
Have Sending It to Foreign Countries
that Still Hate us!!!

**************************************************

Imagine If…

The “House” The “Senate” and
The “President” Stopped Blaming Each Other for
Not Being Able To Reach Agreement On a
New Budget and Instead Just Got the Job Done!

***************************************************

Imagine If…

The Budget Didn’t Include Raising Our Taxes Again.
And Spent Our Tax Dollars On Our Country First!

****************************************************

Imagine If…

For Once The “House,” The “Senate” and
The “President” Did There Jobs With
Honesty and Honor, In the BEST INTEREST
of the People Who ELECTED Them, Like They
Are SUPPOSE To Be Doing?

*****************************************************

Imagine If…

The People That Run This Country
Who Keep Spending All Our Tax Money That’s Not Available –
Had To Start PAYING IT BACK Out Of Their Own Pockets!

I Think They Might Spending Our Tax Dollars More Wisely Instead of  Like It Grew On Trees!

*****************************************************

Guess I’m Dreaming!

So …”I Double-Dog-Dare
The IDIOTS In Washington To Show Us
They Can Actually Do
Something RIGHT For A Change!”

***************************************************

If the politicians can’t balance the U.S. Governments bank account, well, I Think We Need To Put My Daddy In Charge of every penny in the Federal Check Book.

Why?

Because he has NEVER had a NSF Check Or a Utility Bill Shut off Notice and we always had plenty of Food and New Shoes at the Start of School each Year. So I know He knows how to spend what he has, and still pay what needs to be paid without going Bankrupt! Plus he was able to make regular deposits into a  Savings Account for a Rainy Day!

It just annoys me because as my dad could do it his whole life WHY the HECK can’t these  !&(*%$# people we elected to handle things that are getting paid big bucks in Washington DC do IT!!??

Because they are stupid or greedy? I’m sure I know the answer to that question. What I can’t figure out is why they are still there and elected again and again??

Or maybe it’s “We the people” because we are  doing nothing to stop and correct things but just keep voting blindly and putting these no-good people in office !
