الدين القومي الأميركي يصل إلى 33 تريليون دولار

By Ninian Carter

September 20, 2023 - تجاوز الدين القومي الأميركي مستوى 33 تريليون دولار للمرة الأولى، وسط مخاوف من أن معركة أخرى حول الإنفاق الفيدرالي قد تؤدي إلى أول إغلاق حكومي منذ العام 2019.

The United States’ gross national debt has surpassed $33 trillion for the first time, highlighting the country’s uncertain fiscal course as Washington faces a possible government shutdown – its first since 2019 – amid a fight over federal spending.

According to the U.S. Treasury Department, as of September 18, 2023 (just 12 days shy of the end of the country’s fiscal year), the national debt has risen to $33,053,950,837,720 or $33.05 trillion.

Debate over the debt is growing louder, with Republicans and Democrats in the House and the Senate divided on a path forward to avoid a potential government shutdown.

Even accounting for newly passed spending cuts, the U.S. national debt is on track to top $50 trillion by the end of the decade, impacted by mounting interest and the cost of the nation’s social programmes.
