 NOTE 1: The National Debt has not gone down (from year to year) since the end of the Dwight Eisenhower administration.

NOTE 2: World War I increased the Debt by $25 Billion. The Great Depression increased the Debt by $33 Billion and World War II increased the Debt by $222 Billion. The Clinton "peace time" years increased the Debt by $1,200 Billion. I expect that the Geo. W. Bush years will be just as bad, except that Bush has the "War on Terrorism" to fund.
