The Republican staff of the Senate Budget Committee is releasing this chart today to illustrate the comparison between the debt of the US compared to the Euro Zone and the UK combined. (Click to enlarge)
As of the end of December 2011, total US debt exceeds $15.1 trillion, whereas the European side stacks up to $12.7 trillion (all in US dollars). Since Europe has a larger population (331 million against 313 million here), that means that we have a larger per capita debt ratio as well.
Greece is starting to look pretty good right about now.
