The federal government’s fiscal year ended on Monday, September 30. So, it is appropriate to take a look at how much the national debt rose in the past year.

The actual amount? Upon further review, we learn that the national debt rose by $420.773 billion in the past 12 months.

It goes on, with links to the details.
