Then: Overall debt was $5.7 trillion.
Now: The National Debt is $9.5 Trillion!
Then: - A gallon of gas cost $1.56
Now: - A gallon of gas costs over $4.00
Then: - Federal budget surplus over $200 billion
Now: - FY-2008 federal deficit over $407 billion
Then: - Unemployment was 3.4%
Now: - Unemployment hits 5-year high, 6.1%
