Our Unconscionable National Debt

Floor Speech

Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Mr. COFFMAN. Mr. Speaker, on January 20, 2009, the day President Obama took office, the national debt was $10,626,877,048,913.08.

Today, it is $17,444,385,246,890.50. We've added $6,817,508,197,977.42 to our debt in 5 years. This is over $6.8 trillion in debt our nation, our economy, and our children could have avoided with a balanced budget amendment.
