The numbers that we're talking about are too big for individuals, even individuals like Bill Gates or Warren Buffet to conceptualize. But think of it this way, "the money pledged is equivalent to $24,000 for every man, woman and child in the country. It's nine times what the U.S. has spent so far on wars in Iraq and Afghanistan."
This is staggering. Absolutely staggering.
The government doesn't have the money (not even with all the tax increases or growth you can imagine) yet it is jumping into management/manipulation of the economy headfirst.
The madness must stop. And it will - one way or the other: the government must stand aside and allow the free market to operate or face its own, inevitable, bankruptcy.
