Someone's obviously mistaken

So which is it?
"The greatest expectations were placed upon Ted Kennedy’s shoulders because of who he was, but he surpassed them all because of who he became," Mr. Obama said. "We do not weep for him today because of the prestige attached to his name or his office. We weep because we loved this kind and tender hero who persevered blah-blah-blah
Senator Edward 'Ted' Kennedy stood for sleaze. Bloated and drunken, he used his standing in the Kennedy clan to chase vulnerable women  -  which brought his dream of reaching the White House to a shameful end.  A drunk Ted had been driving back from a party to the family 'compound' on Martha's ...hubba-hubba-hubba
If you trend towards seeing the Swimmer as "the greatest legislator of our time," and not the besotted predator whose entire life was a study in privilege without  responsibility, consider this legislative legacy.

I kind of get lost with all those commas.

One hundred-fifty dollars? Maybe it's fifteen hundred. That's not so bad. We'll just borrow it from the Chinese and pay it back next year, right?

It's not like they're trying to buy votes with a trillion-dollar debt they have no intention of repaying, right? Right?

Please tell me I'm wrong... Oh, dear Jesus.

When you get tired of thinking about the debt, think about the interest.

For every trillion we owe, we pay about $50 billion in interest annually.

So... if we owe $17.2 trillion now, according to Stuart Varney of Fox News (who rounded it up to $12 billion), we're paying $600 billion in interest per year.

That comes down to $800 million sent over to China every single week.

That's on $12 trillion in debt we got right now.

You wanna add in the estimated $9 trillion increase of 0bamacare, you'll have to do the math yourself.

oops. that first 17.2 that was rounded up to 12, should have 11.7
