Canada's Debt Clock

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Elite Realty, Port Coquitlam, BC 27-01262
Its enough to make you sick, but what is even grosser is that the US Debt is $39,000 per person and spiraling out of control. The major buyers of the debt in 2009, are China and several Arab countries spearheaded by U.A.E. and Saudi Arabia. Scott Leaf, your Maple Ridge Realtor

I don't even want to see California's debt clock.  It wouldn't fit on my computer length-wise.  This is a real eye-opener.

Ironic that you say "it's enough to make you sick" ... and here we are in the U.S. staring down the barrel of what many believe will be a $1 trillion+ health care bill.

John:  Up until 2009 Canada had been paying down the National Debt and this already included a National Health Care program which is mostly paid for by the Provinces.  The increase in debt is a reflection on lower resource prices, bailouts, and higher unemployment.

I dont think having a health care bill is your problem, being the world policeman is what really costs you guys.

Scott, debt always catches up with you one day in the future! It may be sooner than we think.

Scott,

Nice graphic. You made your point very well. Debt is increasing so rapidly for both countries. :)

Scott - the first time I saw the clock was when I was with the Canadian Taxpayers Federation during their no more taxes campaign back when the CTF first came to Ontario

I don't own any of the U.S. federal debt anymore because I already sent them my $39,000 check. LOL

Happy Thanksgiving from our house to yours!
