Interest Paid on the Federal Debt
In this century, the U.S. Treasury has paid $7,084,454,965,572.52 interest on the national debt.
Seven trillion, 84 billion, 454 million, 965 thousand, 572 dollars and 52 cents.
That’s an average of $393,580,831,420.70 per year.
Always odd, how these figures hardly ever get into the news, isn’t it?
