what's in a billion?

$124 billion.
the amount of money the House approved to fund the war.

i'm trying to comprehend exactly how much money that equates. how much is a billion? and $124 billion? can that amount find a cure for cancer? surely it can fund universal health care. free college education? end homelessness? i can't even begin to fathom.
