US Federal Debt Is Expanding At The Fastest Rate Since The Crisis

A few days ago, the federal debt of the United States rather quietly and unceremoniously passed the $19.5 trillion mark.

And while that figure may seem absolutely confounding, what’s even more alarming is how rapidly the US government is racking up this debt.

In fact, for the 2016 fiscal year that ends in just ten more days, the US government’s debt growth of $1.36 trillion is on track to be the third biggest annual increase ever.

The only two years in all of US history that posted higher US debt growth were 2009 and 2010– the peak of the financial crisis.

It's MORE than 19.5 TRILLION (say that again to yourself and let that impossible-to-ever-pay number sink in). They just won't tell us that because it would definitely affect the election.
keep cheering.

The US debt can only increase with the printing of more money by the Fed. The Fed is causing this problem. The politicians are doing what the Fed wants them to do.
