What Does $87 Billion Look Like?

“It is 100 feet tall, 250 feet long, and 125 feet wide. A stack of singles would be 28,998,000 feet, or over 5,492 miles, more than twice the distance between Washington DC and Los Angeles (5300 miles). A Boeing 737-200 jet is 100 feet long. You could fit 2 of those jets nose to nose along the length of this pile. $87 billion is more than all of the states’ current budget deficits, combined. $87 billion is more than two times the amount we’re spending on Homeland Security.”
