100 Days: Treasury Has Kept Debt Frozen at $16,699,396,000,000



quote:

The Treasury Department’s latest official daily accounting of the U.S. government’s receipts, expenditures and borrowings–released this afternoon at 4:00 p.m.–indicates that the legally limited debt of the federal government has now been exactly $16,699,396,000,000 for 100 straight days.

The Daily Treasury Statement released today showed the status of the government’s accounts as of the close of business on Friday, Aug. 23. Because the Treasury does no business over the weekend, the federal government’s debt did not change on Saturday or Sunday.

The statement for Aug. 23 said the federal debt subject to the legal limit set by Congress was $16,699,396,000,000—or $25 million below the current limit of $16,699,421,000,000. Every Daily Treasury Statement since May 17 has also shown the legally limited debt at $16,699,396,000,000, or $25 million below the limit.

On May 17, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew sent House Speaker John Boehner a letter indicating that the Treasury was then hitting the legal limit on the debt and that he would begin using “extraordinary measures” to allow the government to continue borrowing money without exceeding that limit.

Well, if you can make your numbers for political expediency,
then it's damn hard to say that they are based on any reality.

In the "real" world, numbers just don't freeze like that in the world's largest economy.

Do they expect anyone to really believe this?

It is very simple mon frère, we are playing with Monopoly money between the Fed and Treasury and have for almost all of the Oboe administration. As of now the engineers of the train are greasing the rails and increasing the speed of the train.

It would probably help you guys a lot if you realized they passed that threshold....on March 7th, 2013.

Problem is, neither party is interested in the truth when it comes to the debt.

Exactly. It would be impossible to account for and keep spending/receiving at the same level for 100 straight days.

It would take some ingenuity and serious planning to keep the books of a snowball stand this static.

Serious.

I went to a town hall meeting conducted by a well-known Texas conservative Republican U.S. congressman, and when asked about this issue, he pleaded ignorance.

Assuming this is true, then I don't know which is scarier... the fact it is happening, or the fact that a U.S. congressman doesn't know about it. Of course, he might have known it but just wanted to stop short of denying it.

Why don't they just print a 17 trillion dollar coin. That would put us a few bucks out the hole.

And it's not an issue under the Obama admin because the news media won't make it an issue.
