Fact-checker says it’s false to argue that Obama has run up a $16 trillion national debt

HERE‘s the nub of the matter:

If you include all growth in the national debt under the Obama administration, it’s roughly $5.4 trillion, not $16 trillion. The administration inherited a national debt of more than $10 trillion when it came into office.

  1. How ironic that Boehner talks about the President going on a binge. Heck he’s been on one since picking up the gavel.

  2. That would be a 50% increase in the entire national debt, accumulated over the entire history of the country in less than 4 years.
