LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - That amount is more debt than was accumulated in the first 227 years of this nation's existence -- from 1776 through 2003.

The total federal debt first passed the $7 trillion mark on Jan. 15, 2004, after President George W. Bush had been in office almost three years.

As an example: When President Obama took office on Jan. 20, 2009, the total federal debt was $10,626,877,048,913.08. As of the close of business this past July 30, 2014, national debt had risen to $17,618,599,653,160.19, up $6,991,722,604,247.11 from Obama's first inauguration day.

By the close of business on July 31, 2014, it had risen to $17,687,136,723,410.59, up $7,060,259,674,497.51 since Obama first inauguration day.

As of June, there were 115,097,000 households in the United States, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. The $17,687,136,723,410.59 in debt the federal government had accumulated as of the end of July equaled $153,671.57 per household.

The $7,060,259,674,497.51 in new debt that the federal government has taken on during Obama's presidency equals A STAGGERING $61,341.82 per household.

The median household income in the United States in 2012 (the latest year estimated) was $51,017. Thus, President Obama has increased the federal debt by more than the typical household's annual income.
