19,000,000,000,000 Reasons America Is in Deep Trouble
On Monday the U.S. national debt hit a new record: $19,012,827,698,418. This is the first time the national debt has ever exceeded $19 trillion. That’s more than $58,000 for each person who lives in the United States today (including children).
The main culprit behind the rising debt is growing federal spending—especially among Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and Obamacare.
