So Just How Much Is A Trillion Anyway ?

Ever wonder how much our government (USA) is in debt and what exactly that means ? I do.

According to sources our government owes 14.1 trillion dollars, and lets not forget about the $ 1.6 trillion more we will be adding to the deficit this year.

To break it down to my level :), that means we would have to pay $ 1 million dollars per minute around the clock for the next 30 years just to pay off the principle.

I know, like you needed something else to think about today.
