Everyone can put a bunch of zero's in back of a number and it doesn't really mean too much.
The folks at Kleptocracy put the numbers into a visual presentation and it is shocking:
Let's just say that the Statue of Liberty would be dwarfed if they included the current debt of about $14.5 trillion.
If they included unfunded mandates, then the old WTC look like midgets compared to the debt.
This really put things in perspective and why we need to control the Federal budget.
