The debt of the U.S. government has increased $6.666  trillion since President Barack Obama took office on Jan. 20, 2009,  according to the latest numbers released by the Treasury Department.

When President Obama was first inaugurated on Jan. 20, 2009, the debt of the  U.S. government was $10,626,877,048,913.08, according to the Treasury  Department’s Bureau of the Public Debt. As of  Jan. 31, 2014, the latest day reported, the debt was $17,293,019,654,983.61—an increase of $6,666,142,606,070.53 since  Obama’s first inauguration.

The total debt of the United States did not exceed $6.666 trillion  until July 2003. In the little more than five years of the Obama  presidency, the U.S. has accumulated as much new debt as it did  in it’s first 227 years.
