That's one heck of a number...

From the text of the draft bailout bill:

SEC. 122. INCREASE IN STATUTORY LIMIT ON THE PUBLIC DEBT.


Subsection (b) of section 3101 of title 31, United States Code, is amended by striking out the dollar limitation contained in such subsection and inserting

‘‘$11,315,000,000,000’’.
