If an individual spent $1 million dollars a day for the past 2000 years, ignoring leap year days, they would have spent $730,000,000,000, or $730 billion dollars ($1,000,000 * 365 * 2000).

The US Department of the Treasury lists the total Federal debt at over $13,668,825,497,341, or $13.6 trillion. This number will inherently be incorrect in a short amount of time. Regardless, the debt number means that since the founding of these United States over 200 years ago, the federal government has spent $13.6 trillion more than what it has.

Therefore, the U.S. has spent more money than it earned in the past 200 years than someone who would have spent $1 million dollars a day for the past 2000 years.
