Is there a calculator to see how much 1 trillion dollars added to the debt adds to inflation through prices? So, if the Fed prints out 1 trillion today then how much more will the middle/lower class end up paying for something because of that 1 trillion? What is the price percentage of a good or service increase on that 1 trillion dollars and for how long will that increase last?

Interesting observation you made , it will effect median income people the most , they still pay Fed taxes , yet the inflation will be on the things they and the poor ( who do not pay Fed tax) will end up spending all of the discretionary income on . Food , Fuel....

Glad someone understood what Im trying to get to. I had a revelation that the "we are bankrupt" or the "war is costly" types of talking points are way to abstract for people to understand. It would really benefit us if we came up with some hard numbers to convince self proclaimed conservatives and the working class that wars hit them in the pocketbook. For example, lets see a Ron Paul ad/speech that says are you ready to pay $ _____ more at the gas pump?, $______ more on your grocery bill?, $______more for your prescriptions, $______ more for healthcare?, etc.... if we go to war with Iran?

Wed need percentages though to break it down to lets say a $100-200 grocery bill or a $40 fill up of gas.
