Front and center that the GOP National Convention is not one, but two national debt clocks. These clocks which will run throughout the convention show just how out-of-control America's debt has become.
The first debt clock which was unveiled on Monday shows the total national debt as it's climbing toward $16 trillion. The second clock will show how much the national debt will increase just over the four days of the convention.
“The first clock will bring home the full magnitude of the problem, while this second clock will impress upon the nation just how much our government overspends in the span of only four days,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. “Both clocks highlight the magnitude of our debt problem.”
The record-high national debt stands at $15.9 trillion, with nearly a third of this overspending the direct responsibility of this President.
“Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan understand that burdening our children with such massive debt is a loan on their future,” Priebus said. “We can do better than this, and on day one of the Romney-Ryan Administration, Mitt Romney will take immediate action to cut federal spending and bring the debt under control.”
