Obama on the National Debt

A national debt clock:

Obama says we should end the war in Iraq to save the money. He thinks we should pay as we go.

Senator Obama voted against the most recent effort to raise the national debt limit.

The Outstanding Public Debt as of 09 Apr 2008 PM GMT is over 9 trillion dollars.
The estimated population of the United States is 303,776,896 so each citizen's share of this debt is $31,088.47. The National Debt has increased an average of $1.68 billion per day since September 29, 2006!
