Comment: Your article places the national debt in the billions, but other sources state that the national debt has just surpassed 19 trillion. Could you clarify?
Perhaps the question came from a European who still uses the old definitions of billion and trillion?
(Old European billion = 1012, standard modern billion = 109.)
