We hit 22 trillion in debt..break out the balloons

Not exactly. Obama is the only president who was able to double the national debt. 10 trillion to 20 trillion. But for the record. Both parties suck. It’s like a football team losing 40 to 6 instead of 40 to 3 and claiming they did well. No. They suck. They both suck.


09/30/2009 11,909,829,003,511.75

Bamma became president Jan 20 2009. So this was the National debt after the last budget from Bush administration.

09/30/2017 20,244,900,016,053.51

Trump became prsident Jan 20 2017. So this was the national debt after the last budget from The Obama administration.

Why didn’t you have thread breaking out the balloons for 12, 13, 14, 15, 15, 17, 18, 19, and 20 trillion?



  • years of Obama budgets. He took office Jan 20 2009 so his first budget started with 11.9 trillion debt. At the end of the last obama budget year in office he ended with 20.2 trillion debt.


His budgets were just under doubling. I’ve posted the end of budget year national debt during his administration.

Ahh back to believing the CBO now? Didnt you guys deny it when pushing the tax cuts?

I like how you consistently ignore the context of Obamas presidency - the global financial crisis.

She’ll debate solutions just as soon as folks like you hold Trump and Repubs accountable for runaway spending… so basically never.

So he knew about the deficits and did nothing about it?


Stupid or complicit.

Which do you choose?

There was a global financial crisis his entire 8 years? The debt went up 2015 to 2016 1.3 trillion dollars.

What financial crises was going on during that time?

The argument now is “we knew we would double the deficit to $1trillion the whole time - dont you remember us saying this?”

you care now yay

Why are you cherry picking years? Obama inherited a $1.3trillion deficit and 800,000 joba being lost. The 2 years that you mention $1.3trillion. So, Obama cut the deficit that he inherited in half without crashing the economy with drastic depression inducing GDP cuts, that wpuld have happened if the GOP did what they said should happen. When you add in the deficit as a % of GDP it gets even better. The GOP on the other hand, DOUBLES the deficit to $1trillion at full employment.

I do care about $1trillion deficits at FULL EMPLOYMENT. Thats a bit different than $1.3trillion deficits during a financial crisis with 800,000 jobs being lost a month.

Yeah. Pretty crafty.

Especially when there is really no other explanation that would sound plausible… by “plausible” I mean not plausible.

Go back, I posted the national debt at the end of each year of his adminstration.

It consistently went up, almost to almost double what he started with.

No it didnt. Example 2014 - 2015 in that chart only shows a $300billion increase. These are the deficits:

The national debt on 9/30/15 at the end of the budget year was 18.1 trillion. National debt at the end of the budget year 9/30/16 19.5 trillion. So please for the love of god how can a so called budet defecit of 300 billion equal a 1.4 trillion increase in national debt?

You’re suggesting the governemt is lying about the deficits we ran?

What was it 2014 - 2015?

Do you think the end of year national debt numbers are wrong?
