Nineteen Trillion Five Hundred Seventy-Three Billion Four Hundred Forty-Four Million Seven Hundred Thirteen Thousand Nine Hundred Thirty-Six Dollars and Seventy-Nine Cents

19,573,444,713,936.79. The debt to the penny.

In less than eight years in office, Obama has presided over an increase in the national debt of over nine trillion dollars ($9,000,000,000,000).  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 $157,887 in 2016, a 75% increase.

No matter how the ball lickers on the left try to spin this, Obama has presided over deficit spending in excess of $1.15 Trillion every year of his presidency, on average. Remember that when you read articles talking about how he's "reduced the deficit."
