Not So Stimulating
What if you spent one million dollars every day since Jesus was born? You still wouldn’t have spent as much money as is in the spending bill:
From the Politico:
The American Issues Project, which briefly aired a TV spot in last year’s presidential race, will go up on Friday with a TV spot that marks the dollars spent with the passage of time.
“Suppose you spent $1 million every single day starting from the day Jesus was born — and kept spending through today,” says the announcer as an image of the three wise men flashes on the screen. “A million dollars a day for more than 2,000 years. You would still have spent less money than Congress just did.”
According to Chris LaCivita, an AIP consultant, they are spending just under $1 million on the ad, which will be aired on national cable.
The 60-second ad also singles out an eyebrow-raising statement made by Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on the Senate floor.
“Let me say this, to all of the chattering class that so much focuses on those little tiny, yes, porky amendments — the American people really don’t care,” Schumer said.
Then, echoing one of Obama’s signature campaign slogans, the announcer asks: “Is this change you can believe in?”
