This particular video (less than 2 minutes long) provides a way to help visualize the huge numbers thrown around these days while discussing government spending. We have all become numb to the numbers---and that is dangerous.
While watching the clip (sorry, no way to embed it) keep in mind that the table of pennies represents the annual federal budget. On this scale, $90 of pennies = $3.6 trillion.
Currently the federal deficit is $12.8 trillion and projected to be $20 trillion in 2020.
Now think about that 1/4 of a penny budget reduction next to a table holding 3 to 5 times as many pennies. The significance shrinks even further.
