Democrats on track to double national debt by 2010

The Democrat-controlled Congress, with help from President Obama’s big government vision, is on track to double the national debt in four years.

USA Today published an interactive chart that provides annual revenue, spending, deficit and national debt numbers. The most frightening number is the national debt.

USATODAY

When the Pelosi/Reid left-wing Democrats took control of Congress, the national debt stood at $9 trillion.

Based on Obama’s overview of his $4 trillion $1.75 trillion deficit budget, the chart predicts that, by 2010 — after the Democrats have controlled congress for only four years, the national debt will stand at $17.6 trillion. That is very nearly double the $8.67 trillion debt the Democrats “inherited.”
