Some Numbers

by Mary

Cost of Bush tax cuts (pdf) over 10 years including interest: $2.3498 Trillion. Much of the crappy economy we have is due to those tax cuts.

Shortfall over three years for capacity of economy vs projected output: $2.9 Trillion.

Size of stimulus to fill hole: $ 0.78 Trillion. Yeah, that should pull the economy out of the deep hole it's dropping into.

Number of people I know personally that got their pink slip since Obama was inaugurated: 20.
