Here's what a trillion dollars looks like...

Just so you can visualize just how in debt we are as a country...

Measurements were taken of a $10,000 stack of $100 bills (just half an inch thick!) and pretty much multiplied from there using simple geometry. In that trillion dollar shot, each pallet holds $100 million...and the pallets are double stacked.

That's a person in the lower left hand corner by the way. Have a great day...

Count to a trillion...it will only take more than 9000 years or if you time yourself counting $1 bills to 100 you will see it takes even longer than 9000...more like 16,800 plus years to reach a trillion. Should have made the senators and congressman count the money out before they voted on this spending plan.
