Now that the month of March has run its course, let's take a look at how The Sequester! impacted the growth of the total U.S. Debt compared to other years in the Obama presidency. This is the net change from the first day of March to the last day of March.
For example, in 2013 the debt was $16,640,135,316,625.30 on March 1 and $16,771,379,006,760.30 on March 29 (the last week day of the month). That works out to an increase of $131,243,690,135.00 (that is 131 billion dollars with a "b").
How we have survived as a nation with such austere measures is nothing short of astounding.
