The U.S. has run out the national debt clock in Times Square, the BBC reports.

You see, when they first set up the debt clock in 1989, the debt was only about $2.7 trillion. They never dreamed that it would ever go much higher, so they set the clock to go as high as $9,999,999,999,999.99.


But we showed them! As I’ve mentioned earlier, the national debt recently topped $10 trillion and continues to grow by about $3 billion dollars a day.

The solution is simple: We have got to come together — conservatives and liberals, Democrats and Republicans, Big and Rich — and use our collective intellects and talents to figure out a way to break that clock.
