US Federal Deficit

This is sad. The US Federal Deficit is now larger than the number of stars in the galaxy!

Yes there are 10^11 or 100 billion stars in the galaxy. The US deficit is $320 billion and if you include social security and medicare it is $3.5 trillion!

So arguably there is a $35 deficit for every single star in the galaxy!
