Good News: Government Raises Natl Debt $166B in One Day: More Than We Spent All of 2007

This is change from the Bush years?!?:

The nation's debt leapt $166 billion in a single day last week, the third-largest increase in U.S. history, and it comes at a time when Congress is balking over higher spending and debt has become a key policy battleground.
The one-day increase for June 30 totaled $165,931,038,264.30 - bigger than the entire annual deficit for fiscal year 2007 and larger than the $140 billion in savings the new health care bill will produce over its first 10 years. The figure works out to nearly $1,500 for every U.S. household, or more than 10 times the median daily household income.

To be fair, the government under Bush spent more than was spent on June 30 on two other days, but was Obama supposed to put an end to all of that?
