Worst President Ever Number of the Week: $5.7 Billion

It's been five days since we've updated how much federal debt the Obama administration has racked up.

Five days, exactly $5,723,093,876.10 more federal debt.

It's a long number, so I'll shorten it for those of you having a hard time wrapping your head around 12 digits: The President's policies have put us $5.7 billion more in the hole .... this week.

To put that into context, the so-called "Buffet Rule" which Obama proposes to help "reduce the deficit" would raise less in one year than his administration overspent this week.
