National Debt Roars Past $9 Trillion

The news should have made banner headlines, but few paid attention as the U.S. national debt passed the $9 trillion mark this week. I suppose the lack of interest is understandable, since the citizens who will be stuck paying this bill are mostly in grade school. The sad thing: the national debt was "only" $5.735 trillion when George W. Bush took office in January 2001. We're on pace for the national debt to increase by more than 50% during his 8 year tenure as chief executive.
