Now, the Treasury says 2014 ended with a tab of $18,141,444,135,563.
Guess keeping all those simultaneous wars going and going and going takes a lot of dough.
More than $7.5 trillion has been added to the national debt under Obama with two years to go — which is somehow even worse than the $4.9 trillion added under both George W. Bush terms combined (the majority of which were post-9/11).

If this entire story looks like made-up gobbledygook fiction figures, that’s because these numbers are almost too big to truly fathom.
As they just keep piling more numbers on, it’s going to start to hurt worse than that time you tried to memorize Pi in middle school.
