The National Debt Clock is out of room. The ballooning national debt is about to hit 10 trillion dollars, which is 14 digits - one more than the clock can handle. Ronald Reagan would be so proud.
So, Republicans, congratulations. Your small government, conservative, anti-tax, anti-spending ways have brought us to this point. Enjoy it.
Oh, as an aside...
Which party actually managed to balance the budget?
Oh yeah, it was the Democrats.
