The Federal Reserve’s printing presses are broken, but not for the reason you might think.The new $100 bill, packed with anti-counterfeiting features and a bright new design, has caused Fed printers to fail.
The printing process has been stopped because 1.1 billion notes ended up flawed in production.
That means there is $110 billion in new currency flawed and unusable sitting at the Fed, according to CNBC.
