Under other circumstances what the Senate accomplished this week could be embarrassing. Heck, under these circumstances it should be embarrassing.
In just five days of debate, the Senate trimmed $150,000,000,000 of pork from the stimulus bill. That's a lot of money. The numbers have gotten too big for most people to comprehend.
I hope we can get back to simpler times after this economy stabilizes. $150 billion is $500 per person living in the U.S.
