NATIONAL DEBT BY YEAR

Below is the National Debt by year since the creation of our Republic. Since the creation of the Federal Reserve the National Debt has gone up by 400,000%.

The most fascinating period was the Presidency of Andrew Jackson from 1829 to 1837. He inherited a National Debt of $58 million and reduced it to $33,000 by 1835. No wonder the bankers hated him. We've added $10 trillion of debt since 1981.
