USAGOLD note: On October 1, the national debt was at $27 trillion. So it took six months to add $1 trillion to the total. As of April 1, the aggregate national debt stood at $28,081,128,042,930.95. We haven’t even gotten around to fully shelling out the $1.9 trillion stimulus package as yet, and Congress is just getting started on the infrastructure legislation – another black hole indeed.
