According to the Treasury Department, the forty-two presidents who held office between 1789 and 2000 borrowed a combined total of $1.01 trillion from foreign governments and financial institutions. But between 2001 and 2005 alone, the Bush White House borrowed $1.05 trillion, more than all of the previous presidencies combined.
How have we let things get this far out of control? It's unbelievable: more money borrowed in five years than in all the two-hundred and eleven years previous... and Bush still has until January 20, 2009 to bring that number even higher.
