Congress burning through $1 BILLION an hour (even while asleep)

According to Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, since Barack Obama has been sworn in as President the United States Congress has voted to spend $1.2 trillion... which breaks down to an expenditure rate of $1 Billion per hour. That's during a 24 hour day, not just when Congress is in session (unfortunately).

Anyone else wondering where the heck this money is coming from to begin with?

Chris, I would love to know where the money is coming from! It is so silly to think that this country can just keep taking and taking and bailing people out when there is no money out there! all they get is from OUR taxes! and if were not working because all our jobs are overseas were not paying taxes. America has brought this upon themselves. BTW love the blog!
