Joe the Plumber conducted an investigation into the stimulus bill, and found that:
"The money that they’re talking about spending is just absolutely incredible. You can’t get your mind around it. We used to think a million dollars was just the most incredible thing. Then it went to billions and now we’re talking trillions. And trillions is such a large number we just can’t wrap our mind around it, at least I can’t."
I have to agree with Blue Texan (firedoglake), who said, "When Joe tells me he can't wrap his mind around something, I believe him."
