National Debt Top $10 Trillion Today

The national debt has crossed the $10 trillion mark today. That's $10,000,000,000,000.

George W. Bush and his Republican colleagues (like John McCain) took over in 2001, the debt stood at $5.7 Trillion.

So President Bush added $4.3 Trillion (and counting) in his eight year debacle.

The bailout bill increases the debt limit to more than $11 trillion.
