This is how much investors have loaned the US.

Congress has had an interest-only loan since 1891.

Lincoln increased the National Debt 3,000% to fight the Civil war.

2.7 billion was borrowed, by 1891 1.5 billion was due.

Congress has paid interest on this debt for 122 years.

Congress has paid interest on it's $90 million debt for 154 years.

Investors in the US have enjoyed profiting from Congressional stupidity for a long time at taxpayer expense.

In today's market the US Congress is in debt 200 Kilotonnes of gold.

Free includes debt-free!

Total cost nearing one and a half trillion dollars.
