The federal government has accumulated more new debt–$3.22 trillion ($3,220,103,625,307.29)—during the tenure of the 111th Congress than it did during the first 100 Congresses combined, according to official debt figures published by the U.S. Treasury.
That equals $10,429.64 in new debt for each and every one of the 308,745,538 people counted in the United States by the 2010 Census.
How very special!
Speaking of the Census, is anyone else getting badgered by the US Census Bureau to participate in their "Spending Survey"...?
We've had two mailings and three phone calls - two from the 'Chicago Regional Office' - despite having said an emphatic "No!" the first time.
This waste of taxpayer money bugs the hell out of me - as I've pointed out to them in no uncertain terms!
