Keep the Son in your eyes with this visor --
The $104,300,803,895,565 the federal government would borrow during the lifetimes of babies born in 2009, if the government were to continue to borrow at the annual pace of $1,328,672,661,090 would equal $25,250,366 for EACH of those babies.
At the close of business on Jan. 20, 2009, the day Obama was inaugurated, the total debt of the federal government was $10,626,877,048,913.08, according to the U.S. Treasury. At the close of business on Jan. 16, 2014, the latest day reported, the total debt of the federal government was $17,270,240,354,364.86.
The $6,643,363,305,451.78 that the federal debt has increased during Obama's first five years equals approximately $1,608,304 for each of the 4,130,665 babies that the National Center for Health Statistics says were born in the United States in 2009. It also equals approximately $321,661 per year over the last five years for each of the babies born in 2009.
Add this to the equation: Forty-one percent of those babies born in 2009, or 1,693,658 of them were born to unwed mothers, according to the National Center for Health Statistics.
The $6,643,363,305,451.78 that the federal debt has increased during Obama's first five years also equals approximately $57,762 for every one of the 115,013,000 households the Census Bureau now estimates there are in the country. It also equals an average of about $11,552 per year per household.
