President Bush And The National Debt

On the day President Bush took office, the National Debt stood at $5.7 trillion dollars. Six and a half years later, the National Debt is $8.8 trillion –- an increase of $3.1 trillion dollars since January 20, 2001. That amounts to a jump of 54% during Mr. Bush's watch. The National Debt has gone up more on his watch than under any other president.

The National Debt costs taxpayers $247.3 billion in interest payments. If you wanted to pay it off, dividing it equally among the U.S. population (estimated by the U.S. Census Bureau to be 302,103,675), it would come to $29,245.82 for every man, woman and child

What would it take for you to add the one.org banner to your blog to support charity? I have added it to my own and would love to see other bloggers amplify the need to stomp out poverty.

If the activism irritates you then I understand...

This conversation is going no where. It’s lacking the place of a good leader to head the things to come out on conclusion.

Valuable tips here on no guarantor loans. I think these loans are quite valuable than we think. Although, it is also true that we should apply loans only from the reliable lender. I think Metro Loans would be a better choice. You can make your choice!visit:metroloans.uk
