Eighteen Trillion Seven Hundred Nineteen Billion Six Hundred Thirteen Million Two Hundred Seventy-Four Eight Hundred Ninety-Three Dollars and Fifty-One Cents

$18,719,613,274,893.51. The debt to the penny.

In less than seven years in office, Obama has presided over an increase in the national debt of over eight trillion dollars ($8,000,000,000,000). Yes, under the leadership of Obama, our national debt has nearly doubled. The makers in this country (all employed men and women minus city, state, and local government employees) have seen their portion of the debt rise from about $90,000 in 2009 to $151,000 in 2015, a 67% increase.

And as some people would have you believe, Obama has shown too much fiscal restraint, spending has been too low, and  "#austerity a loser".
