US countdown/up

us debt indicator online

Ticking election time bomb?

I last featured the American online US National Debt clock back in May 2011. It then stood at over $14 trillion.

The image above shows it today, 3 days before Americans vote in the presidential election. An increase of $2 trillion in 18 months.

I watched the clock race up another $1 million dollars (US public debt subject to limit). It took all of 80 seconds.

As of last month, another public clock in New York ran out of digits.[2]

Tick-tock!
