Seems to be working now although it sometimes needs refreshing to get it to go.  Maybe they couldn't afford the bill Wink

Clicking my link I get an error message but it then works when I refresh it.  It also updates correctly when refreshed.  Any ideas why this is happening?

Re: National Debt of US

Link working or not, the figures are completely meaningless in terms of a debt that will have to be repaid.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

In case the link isn't working for everyone it is now showing a national debt in the US of nearly $12 Trillion.  This works out that each citizen is responsible for $38k Shocked

Slightly worse shape than the UK at £16,700 for every man, woman and child in the country.

A frightening figure.  'Another fine mess you've got me into Ollie' to quote Laurel and Hardy Crazy
