I remember when Clinton was in office, there was so much attention to the budget, about how much of a surplus we were able to gain with the fiscally responsible plans of the administration. I just came across the US National Debt Clock which calculates the amount of debt the country has gone into. What’s interesting is not only is it soaring past $8 Trillion, but also, how is it possible that Congress continues to pass bills requested by Bush for his new endeavors. And with ratings as low as they are for succeeding at his job as President, all we can do is sit and endure what amazingly, more than half of the voting population felt was the best option. Absolutely incredible, and frightening.
