I just want to put what the United States current debt looks like into perspective. A stack of 1 million dollars in $100 bills is 43" high. I
figured out what 16.4 trillion dollars is in miles, and it's 11,130 miles high. The earth's circumference is 24,901 miles, so if you take the U.S.
debt in a stack of $100 bills that is 11,130 miles high, and knock it over, it will reach nearly half way around the world. This is not to take in to
consideration the unfunded liabilities that we have. We have 220 trillion in unfunded liabilities. When you take into account Social security,
Medicaid, and Medicare. The stack of $100 bills just grew enormous! Any thoughts on how this could be fixed, or if there is any possible way they
can pay out their promises they make to people every year when we are borrowing .46 cents on every dollar we spend?
The weight of our debt in $100 bills would be roughly 360,800,000 pounds. I wonder how you would take that to the federal reserve. lol
