The US Treasury borrowed over $1 trillion during the July through September quarter that just ended. The national debt grew from $33.1 trillion at the end of Sept 2023 to $33.685 trillion today. They borrowed about $500 billion in 31 days.
All of the debt maturing is old debt that carried 1% to 2% rates, but it is getting refinanced at 5% rates.
Interest payments on the national debt will rapidly rise above $1 trillion annually. Interest on the national debt is larger than our very large defense budget, and it’s increasing.

Meanwhile, our borders are wide open to people who need a lot of money to survive, and they could be terrorists or criminals.
We plan to borrow $100 million for Hamas [Gaza], over $14 billion for Israel, and over $60 billion for Ukraine without offsetting any of it.
Our economy will collapse at some point. I’m not sure when, but it will.
Americans cannot buy homes, cannot even pay auto loans or credit card minimums, but thank goodness we’re sending a mountain of money to Ukraine, one of the most corrupt places on earth! https://t.co/KtRkluKfP2
