700 billion dollars is THE number of the moment.  A best guess on how much buying up all of the bad debt from the nation’s bank will cost.  The Portland Oregonian breaks that number down a little for perspective.
$700 Billion is: -$4,780 for each taxpayer -It could buy 4,590 McDonald’s apple pies for each and every American -Could build 1,077 Chicago Trump Towers -Is about the same of Pentagon budget this year
