I found some helpful illustrations to give us a better picture of what our national debt looks like. Not one of the two men running for office this year are serious about tackling this problem, because to do so would be real, serious cuts, which neither is prepared to do. But here is a good example so that you can visualize America's debt.
This is only $1 trillion! Now our current debt is being spoken of as just over $16 trillion, but our total obligations are more around $222 trillion currently. Hopefully this gives you a picture of the current problem we face.
So when politicians talk about a trimming of a billion or even hundreds of billions, they aren't even talking about serious money when it comes to our national debt.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
