Here’s a very powerful perspective from Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on the out-of-control, special-interest spending bill that Congressional Obamaniacs are trying to shove down America’s throat:
To give the proposed economic stimulus plan some perspective, “if you started the day Jesus Christ was born and spent $1 million every day since then, you still wouldn’t have spent $1 trillion.”
Jim Geraghty at National Review says, the math adds up…
Christ’s birth in year zero one, times 365, times 2009, gets you 733,285,000,000, or a bit over $733 billion. (Yes, I’m leaving out leap years.) You’re not even three-quarters of the way there. (Politifact calculates from 4 B.C.)
Yes, the stimulus is less than a trillionâ€”$819 billion in the version passed byÂ the House. But that’s still a bigger total than a million a day since the first Christmas.
That’s a soundbite that is going to resonate.
Damning, just damning.Â Our 44th President leading America into financial ruin:Â Jimmy Carter Hussein Obama.
