(WASHINGTON) — Superstorm Sandy will end up causing about $20 billion in property damages and $10 billion to $30 billion more in lost business, according to IHS Global Insight, a forecasting firm.

But yet every second the American deficit rises by $41,120

The United States racked up $41,210 in debt every second of every day in 2011 -- making the federal deficit the largest portion of the economy since the height of war spending in the 1940s. That shocking statistic was released by Face the Facts USA, a nonpartisan policy initiative


- Lets round that off to $41,000 - for the sake of our mathematical sanity. So every minute, it rises by $2.46 Million, every hour it rises by $1,47 Billion, every 24 hours its $35,42 Billion.

Some more crazy statistics is that every minture the stack rises 886.2 feet, thats the slightly taller than the length of the Titanic.

Face the fact America, in comparison, a hurricane running through you're country everyday would actually cost you less than having the idiots who you have in office now, or even anytime in the near future

I think its actually 3.54 Billion every 24 hours

$41,000*60(seconds)*60(minutes)*24(hours) = $3.54 in a day

41,000*60 = $2,460,000 (one minute)

*60 = $147,600,000 (one hour)

*24 = $3,542,400,000

That is a serious boat load of money!!

Try if you can spot the difference:
You spend 100$ on goods and services.
You destroy 100$ worth of goods.

This is why we need to slash military spending by over 40%
Raise taxes on people making above 300,000$

Military spending is at an astonishing 901$ BILLION dollars, when you factor in the foreign military aid.
