Under President Barack Obama, the total debt of the U.S. government has increased by approximately $1,608,304 for each of the 4,130,665 babies born in the United States in 2009, the year Obama took office.
Today–Jan. 20, 2009–is the fifth anniversary of Obamaâ€™s first inauguration.
If the federal government were to continue accumulating net debt throughout the expected 78.5-year lifespan of a baby born in 2009 at the same average annual pace it has accumulated net debt during Obamaâ€™s first five years as president, the government would add more than $104 trillion in net debt during the life expectancy of those babies.
