Pauley Perrette is reportedly worth $12 million dollars.

According to The White House Budget Report for 2012 (page 171), the federal government is estimated to spend $3.728 Trillion (while only receiving $2.6 trillion in taxes).

Giving the President some leeway and to make the math easy, let’s just say America will spend in 2012 $3.65 trillion.
So it costs $10 billion a day to run the government, or
$416 million an hour, or
$6.9 million a minute.

So with Pauley’s reportedly $12 million net worth, you could run the government for 1.73 minutes.
