2 TRILLION ALTERNATIVES

Some quick math:

Estimated stimulus spending: $2 Trillion Dollars (and counting)
Current US Population: Approx 303,824,640

The Government could send every single citizen a check for $6,582.74.

Personally, I'd rather skip the new infrastucture, the government programs, the auto bailouts, and watch Citi and AIG burn.

Mr. President, just send me a check.

Since that money is NOT cash in hand, it will first have to be borrowed. Any guesses as to what your share of the debt necessary to generate that spending will be?

I could cheat and look it up, but I'll take a guess of about... oh, $50K.
