The US has a $10,000 price tag for its $3.9 trillion debt.
It has a debt ceiling of $20,000 and Congress is negotiating to raise the debt ceiling from there.
What does this mean for you?
Here are three things you need to know about the US debt.
What’s the debt?
The US debt is $3,9 trillion.
It’s a mix of Treasury bonds, commercial paper, and other government debt.
It’s the second-largest economic force on the planet.
The US debt was $1.5 trillion in 2011.
It will be the third-largest economy in the world by 2020.
The country owes $2.3 trillion to China, which holds most of the US government’s debt.
China also has debt obligations to other nations, including Japan, South Korea, and Germany.
The debt is a massive burden for many of the people who pay it.
But for some Americans, it’s not as huge as it used to be.
In 2013, the median household income in the US was $50,000, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis.
That means a typical household could borrow $1,600 in 2018 and owe just $3 in interest.
The debt is projected to rise to $5,600 by 2023.
How does it affect the average American?
The average American owes $10.4 in interest on the debt, according a Pew Research Center study released in January.
That’s a 4.5% increase from the previous year.
The average debt service rate for the average household was 6.6%, according to Pew.
The average debt owed is also higher than the average debt in other advanced economies.
Japan and South Korea are the only two advanced economies in the top 20 that don’t have a debt-to-GDP ratio that is higher than 3.5%, according the Pew Research report.
The United States has a huge trade deficit with China, the world’s second-biggest economy.
It also has a trade surplus with India, third-bigest economy in terms of GDP.
