One Trillion Dollars.  That’s how much this stimulus package could be before it all ends.  Combine it with TARP, and you end up with at $1.5 trillion on the low end, and $1.75 trillion on the high end.  That doesn’t take into account Obama’s other priorities;  Health Care, TARP-II, etc.  Our National Debt now stands at $10 Trillion in a $14 Trillion economy.  So how much is a trillion dollars anyways?  If spent a million dollars every day from the day that Jesus was born to the present, you would not spend $1 trillion dollars.  CNN reported this yesterday, along with other facts to illustrate just how much money we are talking about here:

Can we really afford to spend that kind of money on Democrat pork?  That can’t be good for the economy.
