March 20, 2009 - PRLog -- The National Debt quietly hit a record-breaking $11 Trillion this week and has announced the official launch of its site to now give every American the ability to check how much their government owes quickly and easily anytime, anywhere by visiting the mobile-optimized site on their web-enabled mobile phones.

Since the site is developed on a .mobi domain name, it is optimized for the smaller screen and slower internet speeds of mobile phones, giving everyone with a web-enabled mobile phone the convenient opportunity to keep track of the National Debt at any time without having to zoom, scroll, or sift through paragraphs of text, long lists of links, or cumbersome images that do nothing but distract from the immensity of the number.

As the entire debt owed by the U.S. Government, the National Debt is one of the most important numbers in the lives of Americans, yet most tax payers are not familiar with it. Unless they live near the Debt Clock in New York, chances are they do not know the figure.  Even the Debt Clock ran out of digits a few months ago.

The National Debt is dangerously increasing at a time when the U.S. Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is decreasing and exists because of the simple fact that the U.S. government spends more than it collects in taxes, and has been doing so for several years.

“This current economic crisis has taught us all how no one can live beyond their means on debt for an extended period of time.  The same applies to world governments and they should use the current crisis as a prophetic lesson,” said Andres Kello, the owner of who is originally from Argentina, a country that defaulted on its National Debt less than 8 years ago and entered into the worst economic crisis in its history which pushed over half its population under the poverty line.

As the National Debt and government spending both continue to soar, the only way for the U.S. to avoid a default on its debt and begin to pay back the burden is by eventually borrowing even more money (which is unsustainable), raising taxes (which nobody wants), or printing more money (which causes unwanted inflation).  None are pleasant scenarios and the longer it takes for the U.S. to begin paying back even part of its debt, the harder it is going to be on future generations as the interest payments on that debt continue to rise.  That is precisely why it is so important for every American to know the National Debt figure, keep track of it, and ensure their government does not let it get out of control.

“With the launch of, Americans no longer have an excuse for not knowing the extent of the burden they are leaving their children,” concluded Mr. Kello.  In fact, the site even spells out the trillion-dollar figure for kids since the number is even more significant to them.
