Three trillion dollars = $3,000,000,000,000.

That's 12 zeroes to the left of the decimal point. Three trillion is three million million dollars. The U.S. government spends more than the entire Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of Australia, China and Spain combined.

If you laid dollar bills end to end, you could make a chain that stretches from earth to the moon and back again 600 times before you ran out of dollar bills!

Three trillion dollars would stretch from the Earth to the Sun nearly three times!

 It would take a military jet flying at the speed of sound, reeling out a roll of dollar bills behind it, 42 years before it reeled out three trillion dollar bills.

What is horrifying is that government will continue to grow in America unless citizens prevent it. If government stays on the course it's been on for the past forty years without a radical change, the federal government will have a $10 TRILLION BUDGET by the year 2010.

Foolish politicians make pronouncements about the strength of the economy. The total debt obligation of the United States now exceeds 46 TRILLION DOLLARS.

American workers now net almost 30 percent less in real wages than they did in 1973. After taxes, two paychecks in a family barely equal the purchasing power one had thirty years ago.
