Debt

The federal deficit has hit $1.38 trillion. If I started counting 1 dollar every second, it would take me over 43 thousand years to count that high.

$1,380,000,000,000 / (60sec * 60min * 24hrs * 365days)

The total debt is $11 trillion, which would take nearly 349,000 years to count that high at the rate of $1 per second. You can watch the debt clock spin here. And this is before we've funded the total health care overhaul.
