    That is the estimate by OMB. I have no reason to think it's inaccurate. You seem a little confused; do you want spending to be paid for or not?

    Not quite, but not far off the mark either.

    That would be a shock to me as well.

    You think a lot of things that have no basis in fact.

    This isn't something that's especially hard to predict. It's an accounting thing.

    It just shows how ridiculously deceitful you have to be to try to make a point. No one said anything about outlawing private businesses....but why do you support public subsidies to support big oil corporations that are making billions in profit? Why are you in such favor of massive corporate welfare?

    So was the unemployment prediction that made the case for the Stimulus program.
