This thread was started for no reason other than to provide data showing our Federal debt change each month. My expectation was that it would be a 12 post thread. Any conversation or debate about the debt should then result in the creation of another thread with the OP setting a context for discussion/debate to follow. My thread title states it to be "simply tracking the FY 2018 debt" noting that not everyone pays it much attention. The Federal debt has increased $21,284,580,588,348.17 since my birth.
