What's $84.9 billion?

Uh, that'd be eight four nine zero zero zero zero zero zero zero zero. So if you earned $84,900 a year you'd have to work for a million years just to pay for the deficits the government expects to run over the next five years. To pay for their planned total spending in 2013-14, you'd have to work for three and a half million years. Amazing how a few years in politics lets people smirk while hurling sums like that into the furnace.
