Dívida dos EUA ultrapassa $33 biliões pela primeira vez

By Ninian Carter

September 20, 2023 - A dívida soberana dos EUA passou a barreira dos $33 biliões pela
primeira vez, havendo receios de que novo confronto em torno das
despesas federais leve ao primeiro encerramento do governo desde 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.
