What Does a Trillion Dollars Look Like?

Using 100 dollar bills, this is what a million dollars looks like.

A billion dollars ... now we are talking about real money, government style:

Moving on to deficit size sums.... here's a trillion dollars with double stacked pallets.

Now imagine a stack 14 times this size.  That is how big the federal deficit is.  Last count, every man, woman and child in the country owes $43,000 of this total. Be sure to thank your elected representatives appropriately.
