To try to place things in perspective as we talk about stimulus, let's look a what a trillion dollars really is - It's a 1 followed by 12 ZERO's with a $ sign in front of the 1.

With a population of around 300,000,000 people that means there is going to be a large amount of money thrown around (did someone say a 30% chance of accomplishing the intent?), which will indebt everyone in this country to the amount of $3,333.33 where $2,333.33 will be ineffective.

Does this sound like it's the least bit bright?

But Marvin, the trillion will create or save 4 million jobs!!
That is only $250,000.00 per job.
