From Senator Jim DeMint:
The bill, if it were a country, would have the 15th largest economy in the world — right in between Australia and Mexico, greater than the Gross Domestic Products of Saudi Arabia and Iran put together. And the American people will be forced to borrow 100 percent of the unprecedented $1.2 trillion price tag, including interest. The stimulus bill will cost well over $1 billion dollars for every page it is printed on and $400,000 for every job it hopes to create or save.
$ 400,000 to (hopefully) create a job that pays, maybe, $ 50,000 a year.
Sounds like a losing proposing to me.
