Here’s How Much National Debt Obama Accumulated During His Presidency

Under President Barack Obama, the national debt spiked a shocking total of 68%.

He added nearly $8 trillion to the national debt, and did not see many results from his executive projects.

Breitbart News reports:

A breakdown of Obama’s budgets for each fiscal year and the amount they added to the debt comes from an analysis produced by


FY 2016 – $1.423 trillion.


FY 2015 – $327 billion.


FY 2014 – $1.086 trillion.


FY 2013 – $672 billion.


FY 2012 – $1.276 trillion.


FY 2011 – $1.229 trillion.


FY 2010 – $1.652 trillion.


FY 2009 – $253 billion. (Congress passed the Economic Stimulus Act, which spent $253 billion in FY 2009. This rare occurrence should be added to President Obama’s contribution to the debt.)

Some of his failed projects include stimulation of the economy (by way of creating construction jobs, etc), ObamaCare (which is constantly under fire by Middle America due to the outrageous premiums that many cannot afford), and his many efforts in the Middle East to end conflict which ultimately created more of a rift in that part of the world.

In comparison, his predecessor George W. Bush accrued only a little over $5 trillion and that included the financial damages from war.

Obama’s fiscal debt accumulation was more than any other President in recorded history, and he has little to show for it in the legacy he is trying so hard to build in his last month in office.

Breitbart News reports:

Obama, with what will be nearly $8 trillion tacked on to the national debt, has added by far more to the U.S. debt than any president in history.

He even went so far as to insult former President George W. Bush’s spending habits in order to justify his outrageous ones.

Breitbart News reports:

While he was running for president, Obama criticized President Bush’s deficit spending, calling it “irresponsible” and “unpatriotic.” Obama said at a presidential campaign event on July 3, 2008:


The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion for the first 42 presidents — 43 added $4 trillion by his lonesome. So we now have over $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back — $30,000 for every man, woman and child. That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic.

In his last few months as President, Obama became increasingly concerned about leaving a legacy.

His legacy now, however, is a ruined America.

Between the immigration control problems and the consequential terrorist threats, to the forcing of millions of Americans to buy health insurance they cannot afford, to the devastated state of the Democratic Party after his “legacy” led to the election of Donald Trump, Obama’s legacy is one that will be rebuilt by a stronger party under President Trump.

What are your thoughts?

Do you believe Obama has left a legacy on America?

Or do you believe he has only pushed back the success of Americans with all his failed projects?

    If there’s any liberals reading this article, the data will finally put to rest the notion that Bush created whatever deficit problems Obozo inherited. Pay particular attention to the final statement that he has “added far more debt than any POTUS in history”. Can’t wait for how you bed-wetting liberals put a positive spin on this!!!

    Not only has his Administration NOT balanced a budget in all the years that Obama has been President, but he gave money to his friends for pet projects like Solyndra, for example, which cost millions of dollars for solar panels, and went belly-up. Everything he’s touched, has been a disaster, or a recipe for more of the same. He’s given birth to the Arab Spring, with the help of Hillary, and the birth of ISIS. There was also the Fast and Furious fiasco with Holder, which was never resolved. The guns they gave out are still murdering people to this day!! He spent all that money on golf games, and some of them were with golf pros. There were also all of the family vacations, which were taken on 2 planes, in the best hotels, with food in the best restaurants, and their extra outings they took. Of course they had to take her mother along, and there were trips that Moochelle went with the kids, her friends and her Daughters’ friends!! The taxpayers are still putting out the flames in their pockets, from the speed at which the Obamas took the cash from our wallets!! Then you have the taxes like Obamacare, gasoline, utility, anything that isn’t nailed down practically, it got a tax on it to pay for some debt that Obama is responsible for. The cost of food went through the roof, too, as well as going to the Doctor or Dentist. Then the Government says that nothing went up the year before, and won’t give Seniors a raise on their check!! Where have they been living- the moon??? I am so glad that President-Elect Trump will be coming into the White House in a few days. Perhaps there will be some honesty brought in along with him, and all of this BS can be swept out the door on the 19th of January!!

    Oh yeah what a glowing success the past 8 years of Obozo has been. Hang in there the nightmare is almost over (we hope).

  • ReaperHD

    This POS BOY should be stripped of every frickin dime he made while he was on the Peoples Dole to pay us back for the extensive vacations.

  • David Stewart

    Sure, liberals, go find another ghettorat and hand him our nation’s checkbook!

  • freethinker4

    Obama was the worst but G.W Bush is a very close second? between them both we are now almost 19.9 trillion and counting that’s around 14 trillion loss or added dept.
    Both Obama and G.W Bush didn’t do right by this country

  • Bill Mulholland

    Obama struts and preens proudly, stridently proclaiming his multitude of “successes” as his so-called legacy. He, of course, NEVER speaks of his contribution to the National Debt. Truly, the only legacy of his that I am thankful for is his massive contribution to the demise of the Democratic Party!!! I really really wonder what his Democratic colleagues really really think of his record.

  • NolanR

    The increase in the national debt should be charged to the dimocrat party. They should have to pay in every dime they get their hands on until every dime is paid Then they can start paying for his and the trannie’s vacations. .

  • George

    Do not forget all the taxpayer money spent on all those vacations.

    • Arlene Peters

      +George, How can we forget? All Presidents usually pay for their vacations except for the SS, but NOT THIS FAMILY OF TRASH.. THEY WERE WELFARE SCUM FROM THE BEGINNING AND NEVER CHANGED..


    His success has been correctly measured by his total destruction of the Liberal Democrat party. For that we can thank him and the criminal Clintons. The remainder of the democrats will soon be seen in their effort to fight against who we the people have selected to represent us.

  • GOParty

    They all laughed at me when I begged them not to elect him, at least not without checking his background. They scoffed at me when I said being black and sexy didn’t qualify him for the White House. But no, even after the Affordable Care fiasco, shutting down most of the Space Program(How many jobs did that cost us!?), and abandoning our ambassador and soldiers to die in Benghazi, they STILL re-elected this traitor. Well, now his sabotage of America will echo for as long as the nation lives, his fictional legacy deserves nothing more than a hole in the ground of downtown Chicago, and for the rest of their lives, those I considered friends who made fun of me for pleading not to elect this criminal will still suffer, and may these simple words forever echo when they do: I TOLD YOU SO!

  • Arlene Peters

    As far as I can see, ovomit’s so called “legacy” consists of “the biggest failure” of any potus the U.S. has ever “elected?” to office. He has not contributed even ONE good thing for Americans or America. He has tried so hard to “break us”, as a country but I thank God his term is over before he finished the job he tried so hard to accomplish. Aside from all the “damage” he caused to us Americans, we must not forget about how this “traitor” supported our enemies with guns, ammo, tanks, and especially “money”. OUR MONEY, and he simply gave it “sneakily to his moslem buddies. Hopefully, he will get repaid by God, in a way that equals exactly what he has done to Americans.

    I will always say this Obama One big ass mistake America
