    I went to the Whitehouse OMB site and downloaded the historical budget table. It says the public debt is 10 trillion. As I remember that was the debt at the end of the Bush admin. The US debt clock says we owe 15 trillion. Does anyone know which is correct and why they are different?

    Dial 9-1-1 and ask for Obama.
    He's on the golf course, more than likely, and will have to be paged.
    So please be patient.

    Public debt offerings vs. intra-governmental borrowings.. aka.. robbing SS and other funds.

    Ask Clinton.... it's what he used to fraudulently claim he was balancing the budget.

    The figures probably do not include the interest on the debt. Obama has not increased the debt we suffer from it's all from Bush and his legislation than hands welfare to the 1% with taxpayer funds.

    Exactly.

    The rest of the responses in this topic have been from people with STUPID stamped on their foreheads. Don't bother listening to them, muckraker.
