Wow, That Happened Sooner Than Expected

“The latest calculation of the National Debt as posted by the Treasury Department has – at least numerically – exceeded the statutory Debt Limit approved by Congress last February as part of the Recovery Act stimulus bill.

The ceiling was set at $12.104 trillion dollars. The latest posting by Treasury shows the National Debt at nearly $12.135 trillion.

A senior Treasury official told CBS News that the department has some “extraordinary accounting tools” it can use to give the government breathing room in the range of $150-billion when the Debt exceeds the Debt Ceiling.”

I take it that “extraordinary accounting tools” is the technical term for “Making shit up and lying our asses off”, although I might be wrong, it could really just mean “Hiding the truth”.   Look people if this keeps up Zimbabwe is going to start laughing at us.   Zimbabwe!!!

I hate it here…
