Our national debt put into perspective as only Iowahawk can. We are so screwed!

A dollar bill weighs one gram. It measures 16 square inches.

US national debt is $14,300,000,000,000.

Weight of US debt in $1 bills: 16,000,000 tons.

Area of the national debt in $1 bills: 57,000 square miles.

Enough to carpet the state of Iowa in $1 bills.

This year, Washington DC will spend another $3,730,000,000,000.

Over $1,000,000 for every square mile in the US. Including Alaska & Hawaii. Over $1500 per acre.

Of that, $1,400,000,000,000 will be new debt.

Another 5700 square miles of $1 bills.

Another 16 square miles of $1 bills every day.

Another 7 acres of $1 bills every minute.

Another 16,000,000 tons of $1 bills.

In $1 bills, another 744 lbs of new debt for every new baby born this year.
