The AP is reporting that the Senate, on a 52-48 vote, sent to President Bush a bill raising the ceiling on the national debt to nearly $9 trillion.
If my math is correct (numbers this big cause major problems for a simple calculator), and assuming that we are at the 300 million mark in population, that means the US government now owes about $30,000 for every man, woman, and child in the country.
Just thought you'd like to know.
