Federal debt HELD BY THE PUBLIC...

There's the rub right there. About 3/4 of Obama's debt is being bought by the Federal Reserve with money that they create out of thin air. That's how they keep interest rates so low and why commodity prices are going through the roof.

Very interesting. You can certainly tell many stories with statistics. Yet,none of them tell the whole story.

no '1 chart' will define the policies of a nation.. thats like looking at a broken feather and assuming the bird is dead.

GDP is also a very flawed way of judging how well a countries economy does. When major natural disasters happen the GDP actually rises. There is a dip in 2005 -- that has a lot to do with hurricane Katrina.

Just because the debt goes up or down during a presidential term doesn't mean it's a direct correlation. Issues that cause debt to rise can happen long before it actually rises.

If you want to see total debt as a fraction of GDP for various presidents (back to Eisenhower), see page 20 here:

The chart is only showing the portion of the federal debt that is held by the public. The total federal debt outstanding is over 100% of GDP today. Debt outstanding includes money the government has borrowed from the Social Security and Medicare trust funds. Politicians ignore this additional amount saying that it is "money the government owes itself." That is incorrect. It is money the government owes future retirees. The only way you can ignore it is to admit that the government intends to allow Social Security and Medicare to go bankrupt.

I think the graph says whatever it says, regardless of what it says, because of Obama. And liberals. And Muslims. And taking God out of schools. And abortions. And people trying to pry our guns from our cold, dead hands. And welfare. And Obamacare. And ACORN! And, the French, too, probably, those bastards!

Both those big spikes are due to stimulative measures to boost a crap economy and war spending.

@jacoswhat does 50 and 100 refer to?


Percentage of Gross Domestic Product. Reading comprehension is not only fun, it is educational!

And it's getting worse, not better, keep that in mind.

Taxes UP, spending UP = debt and deficit UP!
