The National Debt…What Is Your Share?
According to the national debt clock at www.usdebtclock.org , the nation’s debt is getting close to $16 trillion. It’s a topic of discussion at the Republican National Convention. On KFYO, Rep. Randy Neugebauer talked about the significance of the debt:
“If you look at the convention floor, they have the debt clock there. I think that’s very important. I have that on my website just to remind people that every day, this debt is going up at an unsustainable rate, and $16 trillion is certainly a mile marker, one that we shouldn’t necessarily celebrate, but one that should be sobering to us.”
According to the debt clock, the debt per taxpayer is more than $139,000.
