The US national debt has remained the same since 5/28/2013 at $16.699396 trillion.
Hmmm… Who says that there is no hope to pay down the booming national debt?
The newly appointed treasury secretary has done it.
Here is the proof!
And this was how Mr. Jacob J. Lew put it in a letter to the Speaker of the House, The Honorable John A. Boehner:
“implementing the standard set of extraordinary measures that enable us, on a temporary basis, to protect the full faith and credit of the United
States by continuing to pay the nation’S bills.”
