US Federal Debt 130 Billion Dollars More than Last Month

The size of the U.S. national debt and the rate at which the debt is accumulating will lead the United States to ruin — no other outcome is mathematically possible.

As of February 2012, according to monthly U.S. Treasury statements, our national debt is $15.48 trillion — about a $130 billion more from the month prior, when the national debt was $15.35 trillion.

Indiana Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels said it was very “disturbing” to him that “there are a lot of people” in the United States “who have come to the conclusion that there is now a flaw in the American character” and that “we are not people capable of governing ourselves as the system has always contemplated.”

“Too many people are simply selfish and short-sighted. They don’t want to hear about the fact that they will make life much less promising for their children in the future,” he said.

“And they can easily be appealed to by demagogues who just say to keep doing nothing,” he added.
