National debt crisis: what does $136 trillion look like?


Interestingly enough, our government spends money about as fast as the Voyager 1 space probe can travel (38,000 mph).
If you laid out 136.5 trillion $1 bills, it would stretch 13 billion miles into space.

It took Voyager 1 around 40 years to travel 13 billion miles.

You know you have a spending problem when your debt extends beyond the solar system.
