US Debt Visualized - The Terrible Truth [INFOGRAPHIC]

Sure, when you say "trillion" - it sounds like "billion" and "million" - and everyone knows a million is really not what a million used to be - right?

How about this:

$1,000,000  (one million)
$1,000,000,000 (one billion)
$1,000,000,000,000 (one trillion)

Or said another way - if you spent $1 million per day since Jesus was born, you would have only spent about $700 billion- about the amount the big banks got during the last bailout.

You need to see the entire infographic (click image below or click here) - it will blow your mind!
