Mnemonic pictures abound for this dilemma may I suggest the following:
Complexity is mitigated by hierarchy & viewpoint.
The Obama Administration is touting that their stimulus program has saved or created 640,329 jobs since it was enacted back in February through the end of October. This number is updated and posted on the Administration’s recovery.gov web site. That amounts to $246,436 per job based on the $157.8bn that has been awarded so far! Total compensation earned by the average payroll employee during October, on an annualized basis, was $59,867. If the government had simply used the funds awarded so far to pay for a year’s worth of labor, that would have paid for 2.6mn jobs!
BTW, 1.8 trillion $$$ / 636 reps in Congress plus the president = two billion eight hundred thirty million one hundred eighty eight thousand six hundred seventy nine $$$ each person responsible for the additional national debt.
Lets ruin all their reelections - flush the government!
