You Couldn't Spend $1 Trillion... (could you?)

The government has all kinds of projects it could spend money on - some you may think worthwhile, some you may not.  But I'm willing to bet that $1 trillion - which the stimulus package could possibly cost - would be nearly impossible for a single person to spend.

The soundbite from Sen. Mitch McConnell in Thursday's show is hard to believe:  "If you started spending the day that Jesus was born and you spent a million dollars every single day, you still wouldn't have spent a trillion dollars" today.  INCREDIBLE.

So let's just take one year.  Say you have $1 million to spend every day for 365 days.  Could you do it?  How would you?
