$3,220,103,625,307.29….no, a rat’s not doing a tap dance on my number keys, that’s what the rats in congress have spent THIS YEAR.
Thank’s Mr. President and thank you Congress…for spending ten grand of my money!
Let’s see, is our current congress on the spendthrift side? They’ve only blown more money than all the congresses before…combined. How ludicrous is that? One more time, MORE MONEY THAN ALL THE OTHER CONGRESSES COMBINED! Three point two trillion.

111th Congress Added More Debt Than First 100 Congresses Combined: $10,429 Per Person in U.S.
December 28, 2010
The federal government has accumulated more new debt–$3.22 trillion ($3,220,103,625,307.29)—during the tenure of the 111th Congress than it did during the first 100 Congresses combined, according to official debt figures published by the U.S. Treasury.
That equals $10,429.64 in new debt for each and every one of the 308,745,538 people counted in the United States by the 2010 Census.
The total national debt of $13,858,529,371,601.09 (or $13.859 trillion), as recorded by the U.S. Treasury at the close of business on Dec. 22, now equals $44,886.57 for every man, woman and child in the United States.
In fact, the 111th Congress not only has set the record as the most debt-accumulating Congress in U.S. history, but also has out-stripped its nearest competitor, the 110th, by an astounding $1.262 trillion in new debt.
During the 110th Congress—which, according to the Clerk of the House, officially convened on Jan. 4, 2007 and adjourned on Jan. 4, 2009–the national debt increased $1.957 trillion. When that Congress adjourned less than two years ago, it claimed the record as the most debt-accumulating Congress in U.S. history. As it turned out, however, its record did not last long.
