U.S. debt

Published: Friday, Jan. 11, 2013 5:30 a.m. CST

To the Editor:

Want to see, in real time, the U.S. debt (plus a host of other national statistics)? Go to www.usdebtclock.org. One caution: Before doing so, put down your cup of whatever so you do not spill this on yourself.

Please remember, in pure form, economics/money is nonpartisan. This record shows what our government (all parties) has created and is continuously feeding.

One more note: The debt numbers are only at the federal levels; they do not include state or local debt.

Remember, this is not about the 1 percent of Americans. This is not about the 99 percent of Americans. This is about the 100 percent of Americans.
