"Government debt is the debt owed by the United States government, and is money borrowed through government securities and federal government agencies. U.S. public debt comes from debt held by the public and debt held by government accounts. This debt has a limit on the total amount of bonds that can be issued, known as the debt ceiling. Documents on debt ceiling increases can be found in this collection as can speeches and hearings on or referring to the federal government debt. Economic reports of the president can also be found in this collection, which is an annual report written by the Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers."
