National Debt Clock Runs Out of Digits

An interesting sign of our times is our burgeoning national debt, which also happens to be something neither of our presidential candidates wants to talk much about.

How bad has is gotten? The National Debt clock in new york city has run out of digits, as the total has now passed the $10 trillion mark!

NEW YORK - In a sign of the times, the National Debt Clock in New York City has run out of digits to record the growing figure.

As a short-term fix, the digital dollar sign on the billboard-style clock near Times Square has been switched to a figure — the "1" in $10 trillion. It's marking the federal government's current debt at about $10.2 trillion;_ylt=AvuG5JqrBLm9v4c0ui1lLBADW7oF
