The U.S. national debt for the past 70 days has been stuck at exactly $16,699,396,000,000, CNSNews.com reports, citing the Daily Treasury Statement for July 26.

“That is approximately $25 million below the legal limit of $16,699,421,095,673.60 that Congress has imposed on the debt,” the report notes.

Fed debt subject to the legal limits imposed by Congress first hit the $16.7B mark on May 17. The national debt has for every business day since then been exactly $16,699,396,000,000.00.

“If the debt had increased by even $30 million at any time during those 70 days, it would have exceeded the statutory limit,” the report conceded.

However, according to the Treasury, the debt hasn’t budged an inch. It has been stuck at exactly $16,699,396,000,000:

Fraud? Or Buffer Overload? Remember that guy who was erroneously given a bijillion dollars on PayPal? I think we've uncovered the Democrats' plan to eliminate the federal deficit. Eat that, Paul Ryan!

Perhaps someone distracted the guy counting and he had to start over. 1,2,3,4,5,6....

First of August 2013. Muso finds a letter in his mailbox. He is now the proud owner of a new, until recently, secret bank account.

His account is 1bn in the red. He is asked to balance it ASAP.
