  Mr. COFFMAN. Mr. Speaker, on January 20, 2009, the day President 
Obama took office, the national debt was $10,626,877,048,913.08.
  Today, it is $18,888,640,000,429.69. We've added 
$8,261,762,951,516.61 to our debt in 7 years. This is over $8 trillion 
in debt our nation, our economy, and our children could have avoided 
with a balanced budget amendment.
