Debt ceiling lifted, and the same day, debt jumps $339B

by
November 4, 2015

The U.S. national debt jumped $339 billion on Monday, the same day President Obama signed into law legislation suspending the debt ceiling.

That legislation allowed the government to borrow as much as it wants above the $18.1 trillion debt ceiling that had been in place.

The website that reports the exact tally of the debt said the U.S. government owed $18.153 trillion last Friday, and said that number surged to $18.492 on Monday.

    I just read were 41% of the tax money collected is wasted. Ben Carson nailed it when he said if you take the waste out of Government everyone gets a tax break.

    It’s like they got a new credit line and need to max it out so the new budget can reflect their growing needs. Government budgets are flawed that way.

    Doesn’t this seem strange at the same time they are saying we cannot afford a wall to close the border. We have not been able to afford anything for along time but it didn’t stop the government from spending. The republicans and the democrats are both guilty. It is the law that the border be closed. We need some of you intelligent people out there to tell us why it has not been closed. Money and power are the reason. Our government sold us out a long time ago and we are just waking up now to discover it. Is it too late do anything? If you are depending on the repubs or demos to do something, you are in for a rude awakening. The government has put the story out hat the majority of the American people want new comprehensive immigration laws. That sounds good but it is BS. We want the law to be enforced. **** Put out concertina wire with very high voltage and see how many of them can climb it. Have the National Guard do it be cause we actually have a very small active service group. Picture signs and then we will see how many blind people climb the fence. The voltage can be so high that they will not even have to touch it before they will know that it is there. When people say we can’t afford to close the border, get those peoples names because they have an agenda that is not in the best interest of both people. WE CANNOT AFFORD TO NOT BUILD A HIGH VOLTAGE FENCE. Look at the prisons and how many are illegal immigrants. Check out the government subsidized housing and see how many are there. See how many are getting health care and all the other benefits that we worked for and will not get.

      Just like Obama putting out the word that 90% of the people in America want gun control, a total faaking lie. Even people who support Obama don’t trust him with their guns. They keep repeating the same BS until the ignorant believe them. Wake up you dumb a$$ liberals and try the damn truth for a change.

        “They keep repeating the same BS until the ignorant believe them.” A practice they learned from Karl Rove, who made it into a fine art.

    I bet that the Democrat Senate leaders Mc Connell and Reid went out for a celebration after they created this additional DISASTER in the Image of Odumbocare…as the Incompetent POTUS went on BS NBC to Drop some more of his Usual Bovine Droppings….

      As long as we have Clueless Barry with an almost 100% Democrat Senate…We are in DEEP DUDU!!!

      • I Seigel

        That’s funny! You do know that in the last election, Republicans took control of the Senate and maintained their control of the House. Lets not hear any more excuses.

        • The Redhawk

          Hey SIEG HEIL.. are you really DE Blasio’s Cousin?? Son?? or alter DUMBASS EGO?? you just show up when nobody cares who you are or what you have to say… now go away and Move out of Mother’s basement

          • I Seigel

            Hey Chickenhawk! What do you mean “nobody cares”? Not only have several people taken the time to answer my comment, but even YOU have shown you care! Awww, how sweet!

        • Mike Olson

          Republicans thought they were voting to take control. We will see if Paul Ryan is good on his word.

          • Debra

            Here’s hoping.

        • Debra

          No…they took the majority but they never took control.

          • Mike Olson

            You are correct. And Boehner thought he could get away with punishing those that voted against him in an attempt to take over the speaker’s job.

        • dmttbt

          Exactly, they are not two different parties they are one party made up of thieves and liars. The organized crime party.

          • I Seigel

            So a Third Party is needed! Let’s get going!

    • dmttbt

      Amen.
