Of course this is only the IOUs currently made in the form of bonds. An even larger problem is the money it is short to for future social security and medicare payments it has promised to make (unless thats changed).

We need to start talking differently about the size of the debt and unfunded liabilities so it sinks into the general public to whom numbers in the $trillions are too abstract.
Federal government will need >$1 million per household to pay its IOUs!
> $116 trillion ="official" debt plus money  short for future social security, medicare, etc
Even its "official debt" of $14.2 trillion  is $123,754 per household!

Government has got to stop spending. The debt ceiling has already been reached next we're headed for the debt wall. If the ceiling is raised again, this problem is going to repeat itself.

Government must stop spending. The debt ceiling has been the next one, which we reached for the wall of debt management. If the ceiling is increased again, this problem will occur again.
