    Re: Mexican drug lord house photos

    The funny part is that it is likely the only reason this house got raided is because the drug lord decided not to pay out as much as the politician(s) were demanding to keep law enforcement away.

    That's wild. Although, I highly doubt the validity of this statement.

    The money and valuables found in this one house alone, would be enough to pay for health insurance for every man woman and child in the U.S.A. for 12 years

    Selling drugs is a good business. If you dont mind a few years behind bars. All you have to do is hide the money so the feds cannot find it all and when you get out go get it and invest it.

    "The money and valuables found in this one house alone, would be enough to pay for health insurance for every man woman and child in the U.S.A. for 12 years!"
    If health insurance costs a dollar a year per person then there would have to be 3.6 billion in that house. Another spot in the post it said they found 22 million in cash. I think they were exaggerating more than somewhat.

    With that said, that is a lot of money.

    exactly. Consider the fact that there are approx 300 million people in the US. If the average health insurance policy has a $50 monthly premium (very low estimate) then that house would have to contain over 2 trillion dollars in cash and goods, to make that claim true.

    For comparison, the US national debt is about 13 trillion.

    His claim is impossible.

    you did the math faster than I did, but it's the same conclusion. That's a ton of money, but nowhere near enough to match his claim.

    Not to mention one of the caption says "All 100s" and all you can see are Andrew Jacksons, not Benjamin Franklins.

    He's not claiming the cash covers it, but everything that was in there. The animals and artwork were probably worth a ton.

    agreed the money and goods are worth a ton, but not 2 Trillion dollars. That's 40 times more than the net worth of the richest man in the world (approx $50 Billion) His health insurance claim is just a huge exaggeration.
