The debt of Trillions in $100 bills

Unless you have been on Mars or doing a Rip Van Winkle, you probably are aware that there is a big debate going on in Washington DC about raising the debt limit.

Numbers concerning the size of the debt are being bandied about as if one were speaking about the cost of an ice cream cone or something equally supposedly mundane and inexpensive.

But when one speaks of Trillions, the question naturally arises, "How much IS a trillion dollars really?"

On April 29, 2009, we posted a DIT about how 'big' a trillion is.

Apparently no one in DC saw it because they are still spending money as if there is an endless supply.

So, since the topic has returned and since trillions are still being spent like water, we found another link that tries to explain what the multiple Trillion Dollar debt of the USA looks like.
