Rick Santelli Criticizes Buffett Rule

I hope he doesn't have a heart attack. He's one of the few that is constantly talking about the U.S. debt and deficits. Imagine him doing a cooking show with knives.

U.S. Debt -- $15.6 Trillion

How much is a trillion dollars?

Using $1000 bills (if they were still around)

1 million dollars = 4 inches high,

1 billion dollars = 334 feet high, and

1 trillion dollars = 63 miles high.

So how high is our debt (using those same $1000 bills)?

15.6 x 63 = 982.8 miles
