If you recall my article on the newly invented way of calculating GDP, well we are at that point now.
Today, the new GDP numbers (including legal bills, art, music, theatre and imaginary pension funds) were in effect. Real GDP grew 1.7% on an annualized basis in the second quarter of 2013.
As you can see, the old nominal GDP numbers (red chart) and the new nominal GDP numbers (green chart) are about 3% different from each other.
With these new numbers in place, my zero hour debt chart is being reformed to this.
You can see the large drop there, meaning that debt has actually dropped due to the debt limit.

Good work in fudging the numbers, Ben.
(also note that stocks are now seemingly 3% less overvalued)
