Ten Trillion and counting project

By Braden Choutau


Ten Trillian and counting is the United States national debt. The three most important concepts are, Starve the beast, Healthcare reformed focus, and Obama Fiscal Policy

Starve the Beast

Bush said he was going to cut taxes 1.3 Trillion in 10 years. Bush never passed the spending bill.

Health Care reform focus

Americans spend over $3 trillion a year on health care but have shorter life expectancies and higher rates of infant mortality and diabetes than our global peers. The problem is that people are living long and more baby boomers are retiring. Medicare is overwhelming the national budget and will eventually take it over.

Obama fiscal policy

Big image
Obama said he was going to spend 400 billion dollars on a recovery plan. But this is not what people want to hear at all when we are in a recession.
