How much debt did President Obama receive when he became president in 2008?

When President Obama was about to take office, the national debt stood at $10.6 trillion. He inherited the debt from two wars, the Bush tax cuts, and a prescription drug benefit-- none of which had been paid for. President Bush himself had submitted a budget in 2008 in which he predicted that in 2009 there would be a budget deficit of $407 billion; it turned out the deficit was larger: $1.4 trillion. So that is what the new president had to deal with in his first year in office. It should also be noted that President Obama's stimulus package added to the deficit, but many economists believed it was necessary in order to keep the economy from falling into a recession. There are still conservatives in congress who disagreed with the stimulus and believed that cutting spending was the most important thing, rather than trying to jump-start the economy. It is an ongoing debate even four years later.
