U.S. National Debt Update March 2012

The US National Debt has increased by $93,188,029,341 since our last update in January 13, 2012.  Another month, and the United States has dropped nearly another $100 billion in the hole.

National Debt as of 3/13/2012

$15,497,165,306,031

That is an increase of $4.9 BILLION PER DAY since our last update 36 days ago.

QUESTION: Have you ever lived this way – where you used a credit card or some other form of debt to spend money that you did not have?

My question remains:  At what point in time will this type of spending stop?

I believe the answer remains the same – When the citizens of the country as a collective whole start managing their own money responsibly!

What are YOUR suggestions for addressing this?

    Now that I am really starting to try to control our finances, it makes me really upset to see that. Also, as my husband is in the military, it makes me afraid. We are the first for cuts. I see the national debt go up and I see more cuts to the defense in this country. It’s not just our pay either, which is below poverty level, but if we were to be attacked…we are way under manned with more cuts happening everyday. Our national debt affects a lot of areas, from our freedom to our safety is threatened.
