"That stimulus money?" the guy says. "Shovel-ready jobs? Two trillion dollars," he says. "That money went all around the world. They didn't spend any of it here."

I'm not sure exactly what the guy's complaint is.

As of 13 June 2015

Two trillion dollars?

Zero point seven eight seven trillion, more like. $787 billion.

Two trillion would have been a good number, if they spent the whole thing in about 365 days. But they didn't plan to start spending it for a year or so. No understanding of the word "urgent". No understanding of the word "stimulus".

Anyway, I don't know where the guy got his numbers from. I do know he listens to Rush Limbaugh.

Oh, and if you want to find out where they spent it, it's easy enough to find out.
