From an article by Frank J. Tamel at Examiner.com:
Obama’s spending spree is projected to cost the American taxpayer over 13 trillion dollars over then next ten years. Let’s put that number into perspective. One trillion miles is roughly the distance of a round trip from Earth to Pluto three hundred fifty times. One trillion dollars is roughly the cost of paving the entire US Interstate Highway System with 23 karat gold leaf. One trillion dollars can fund the military of every NATO country combined. One trillion dollars will pay for less than one tenth of Obama’s spending spree.
