Since President Barack Obama took office in January 2009, more than $6 trillion dollars has been added to the national debt.

"Without fanfare, the Bureau of Public Debt at the Treasury Department quietly posted its daily debt report showing the total public debt of the U.S. government topped $16.687 trillion. (To be exact: $16,687,289,180,215.37)," reports Mark Knoller of CBS.

"On January 20, 2009, the day Mr. Obama took office, the debt stood at $10.626 trillion. The latest posting reflects an increase of over $6 trillion."

That article title should be revised to:

"Obama, his Administration, and Congress have now Added $6 Trillion to the National Debt."

Don't forget about Congress and their role in our Republic. Their complacency is equal to that of Obama's when it comes to our rising national debt.
