We have all heard the news about the proposed national health care reform.
Conservative estimates put the price tag at $1 Trillion, assuming, of course, that the revenue and expense projections are correct.
What exactly is One Trillion Dollars?
Numerically that is: $ 1, 000, 000, 000, 000.
One Trillion is 1,000 times more than One Billion.
One Trillion is also One Million times One Million.
Just how long would it take a person to spend One Trillion Dollars if you spent One Million Dollars per day?
You know, picture yourself buying a One Million Dollar home every day.
It would take One Million Days, or 2,739.73 years, to spend One Trillion Dollars at that rate.
Make no mistake, One Trillion Dollars is a huge sum of money.
So, let’s stop our number calculating with national health care reform and not even consider the overall current national debt, which treasurydirect.gov puts at $11, 545, 275, 000, 000 as of June 30, 2009.
