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?

    If I had a million dollars to spend every day I don't think I would know where to start! I would probably donate a lot of the money to Bakas. But then I would buy a lot of clothes, a cactus, and a miniature pony to live in my house with me. Then I would pay someone to house-train it.

    To be honest I would give it to all the people who really need it. like families of 5 whos parents have no job.

    If i had $1 trillion i would open a restaurent or a skate store and clone my pet or a animal that i really love who died but it would be to late... i would give $20,000 for my teacher Mr.kerr one of my coolest teacher ever to help him for his appartment and his toilet or something he likes to buy.
    i would buy a big house with 3 car and 1 big boat.

    Without A Doubt! I'd 1) provide the foundational needs (according to Maslow's Law of Hierarchy) to encourage those who desire to better themselves, i.e. – housing, education, employment, family unification/reunification, health insurance; 2) pay off as many national debts as possible; and 3) resolve the environmental issues of this country with natural resources.

    I would go on trips and spend money wherever I go! I guess a way to get rid of it and using it wisely would be donating money, and I guess I would do that too. Eventually, I thing I would get broke sooner or later.

    If I had $1 trillion, I would donate money to many charities. I would also burn some of the money to decrease inflation.

    Dear ZUZ,

    Micheal Phelps is one of the best athletes in the world . He is an idle to many of the world and this act could change the minds of all his fans. I am very sadned by his choice. I hope in the future he thinks first.

    Everyone wants to live like a millionaire even for just one day. I'm but only one of them. But a whole year living with million dollars? Just paying taxes and insurance, neccesities, food, debt and especially just living without anyone working a job.... in this current economic situation a year with a million dollar is nothing. Maybe putting them to a vault and getting a job would be more efficient. You know after this crisis is over then you could largen it and getting a tour autour l' monde.(Tour around the world)

    I could spend a trillion dollers by buying every thing in sight.

    If I had a trillion dollars I could spend it. I would spend it on a lot of things, but I'm mainly going to buy a beautiful house.

  17. Josh

    If I had a trillion dollars than I could probably spend it. It might take a while for me to spend it but one way or another, it will be gone. In 365 days, I could probably spend 1 million dollars. Thats a lo of money, I would go crazy if I has that much. So I would buy everything in sight.

    February 5, 2009 at 10:06 am |
  18. Brittney

    Yeah I could easily spend a million dollars.
    There are so many things that I could spend it on.
    First I would take a shopping spree, and spend about a couple thousand.
    Then I would be off on a million dollar vacation to an island.

  19. Crystal

    I would deferentially move to New York. But a huge house, and then buy a lot of cloths. Then pay for my family to come to New York.

    February 5, 2009 at 10:08 am |
  20. Brittany

    I think that for the first few months or weeks i would be able to spend the money. I would take my friends and family shopping and traveling. But after so long, you would have everything and then the money would just sit there.

    February 5, 2009 at 10:08 am |
  21. brady

    Yeah i could spend one trillion easy. I would buy big nice pool with it. Then I would turn the rest of the money into cash, and put it all in my pool for a pool for of money with a money slide.

    February 5, 2009 at 10:09 am |
  22. Kailtyn

    I would not be able to spend a trillion. Maybe on clothes but not a trillion. Wow a lot of money and i can't even spend that much on clothes. Good luck for what ever they do with it.

    February 5, 2009 at 10:10 am |
  23. Devin

    I think we should spend a trillion dollars on the debt because we could maybe get out of the recession,so people won't loose houses and you don't see dogs with their owners asking for money for food. Because every time I see that I feel bad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    February 5, 2009 at 10:10 am |
  24. Amira

    I really wouldn't spend all that money by myself, but if I had to, I'd spend
    it on something nice and very expesive. Hey, I'm just a girl!

    I would help schools with their problems, and with funding. Then buy food and clothes for the needy. I love to help people get a better life!

  27. Felicia

    I would keep 1 million to pay for my neccesities and collage and give the rest to hungry children in different countries and pay to have them taken care of. That would be sooooo cool!!!

    February 5, 2009 at 10:57 am |
  28. Natalie

    I don't know, i am a pretty good shopper and I think that if I got 1 trillion dollars to spend in a life time then I think I could do it before I die. I could go to every mall in the world and spend more than a million a day. And I could design the most amazing house in the world with everything i could possibly dream of. If i got the chance to get 1 trillion dollars then I would faint for about 2 hours then I would buy plane tickets to every country in the world, buy a limo and get someone to drive me around, and then I would hit the malls. I would go in every store and buy everything that I could see. But I really don't think that I would get that chance. Thanks

    I would put the money towards cure for disese's becasue if will put money towards medcine as we do beauty products we would have found cure's by now.yeah that is what i would do.

    February 5, 2009 at 11:22 am |
  32. Keshia

    I would probably invest about a third of it and the rest I'd give to agencies that help save the enviorment, help out America's poor, and help find cures to various diseases.

    February 5, 2009 at 11:49 am |
  33. Tyler

    One million dollars a day for 365 days? I'd donate $500,000 to a charity every day, help some people out who needed the money more than I did, then the rest I'd (I hate to say it) probably end up using for personal gain. A lot would end up going towards college too, though!

    February 5, 2009 at 11:59 am |
  34. Nermin

    In these times if you had a million dollars to spend everyday...the best way to spend it would be to give it away to people the really need it and you could also use some yourself, of course.

    February 5, 2009 at 12:01 pm |
  35. Jesse

    The report said that spending a million dollars a second, every day since the birth of Christ, you would not have spent it all by today. However, we're not talking about one person here, we're talking about a country of three hundred million people. If a trillion dollars is what it takes to get this country back on its feet, then I say go for it! Every person in this country is worth a thousand times that.

    February 5, 2009 at 12:03 pm |
  36. Jesse

    On the subject of spending, though, the top priority would be a total restoration of the environment and the beginning of a program for world peace.

    February 5, 2009 at 12:04 pm |
  37. Bethanny

    i would spend it on school funding. Getting new supplies and resources for the schools, and even start college funds for students. I would also start a fund to help the homeless recouperate. Start a program that helps them manage money and find jobs and places to live. I would also try to stimulate health programs and start free clinics for people who can't afford medical care. And then I would help other countries with their problems.

  38. Teacher Nicci's Class, East Mesa Juvenile Detention Facility

    We don't think that we could do it. At first you could buy a bunch of stuff, but eventually you would run out of things to spend money on. But we would like to try!

    this is a huge number! and with this number we will need action. i do not see action happening in my life time, nor in my childerns life time. we need to start taking this action as fast as possible.

    I love to shop, i would love to give money to charity's, buy new cars and houses but i still dont think i could manage to spend that much money.

    February 5, 2009 at 12:53 pm |
  43. Jessica

    I dont believe that i can spend a million dollars a day thats alot of money, i would probably donate a bunch of the money to different charities, and donate to environmental groups to help save the environment 🙂 but a million dollars a day is a lot of money. i would also pay my college tuition and everything i need for college.

    I could definatley spend 1 trillion dollars and probably in 1 day. I would go and buy a country, preferably in the Carribean.

    February 5, 2009 at 12:55 pm |
  46. Laura

    I think i could definitly spend $1 million a day i would start by moving out than i would buy a house for me and my boyfriend. after all of that i would just buy clothes, shoes and a couple dogs =)

    if i had a trillion dollars i would probably own my own country.

    If I had a Trillion dollars I would use it to get our country out of debt because there really isn’t anything else out there worth a Trillion dollars. If I had any left I would have to buy myself a new car though.

    February 5, 2009 at 12:57 pm |
  49. Alyssa

    I would buy a house, a few cars, some quads, dirt bikes, jet skiis, world show horses. My house would need some furniture and paintings. I would donate a couple thousand dollars every day to charitys. I would also donate a couple thousand dollars to animal and human shelters and i would help the flood victoms.

    February 5, 2009 at 12:58 pm |
  50. Kirstie

    I would use that much money for other people. I could organize a mission trip and pay for a bunch of people to go. I could help my parents pay off their bills and a bunch of other stuff. I would definately put a chunck into the arts department in many different ways. I think that the only way to spend that much money would be to use most of it for other people. Otherwise, it seems selfish.

    February 5, 2009 at 12:58 pm |
  51. Devin

    I dont think i could spend a million dollars a day.
    it would be nice to have that much money to spend every, but if you really think about it, What would you buy. yea you could start off by buying houses for every onein your family, and really nice cars for everyone. but eventually you would run out of things to buy.

    i would do it by settling all of my family members debts and payments. Buy all of them houses and a car of their dreams,(or a couple cars per person) Help countries and other needy organizations that really need help to make their lives better. i would deffinitly buy the latest and best technology for my self. such as TV"s, stereo systems for my house and cars. Cell phones. All of the good stuff.

    February 5, 2009 at 12:59 pm |
  52. Allen

    A million dollars a day... might not be enough, I'd have to save some up. A large bit of property would be first one my list, a few dozen acres. Then a rather large house would get put up, fit with expensive materials, probably get it built somewhat fancy. Electronics and things needed for a house would be next. Some nice flat screens and all that, huge couches. Cars would be after that, my dream car, I would buy my dad and mom their dream cars, then i would buy some for my friends. Get any customizations in those cars that they would want which would probably include some sounds systems, engine mods, body kits, and all that stuff. Probably donate a lot of it. Then I'd get my parents a nice house to retire to and give them a million to live off of.

    February 5, 2009 at 1:01 pm |

    There's no way I could spend all that money! If you find some one who thinks they can spend it, GOOD LUCK TO THEM!!

    February 5, 2009 at 1:01 pm |
  54. Courtney R

    I would spend it on college funding, a house of my dreams, and a car. I would also help the people that were layed off find new jobs, and pay them while they were unemployed for the basics. I would also donate 500,000 dollars to the American Cancer Society

    February 5, 2009 at 1:02 pm |
  55. Ronda

    i feel we would have to start helping low income society and then start investing in makeing more products in the U.S. which would then lead to having more jobs. and possiably give us more products to export.
    then help out countries in more need of help. who have more problems then just money, and not being able to afford peoples "needs" for social bi-products. and invest in medicare for africa. to help them get back on there feet medically.

    we could spend a trillion But, only on truffles, sports cars, & real fine jewelry.

    February 5, 2009 at 1:25 pm |
  57. Kayla

    i would spend a lot of the money on charities and things that are really needed such as houses and food for those people that don't have that. There are multiple ways to spend money and I think that a trillion dollars is much more then I could ever be able to spend.

    February 5, 2009 at 1:26 pm |

    It would be easy to spend it all but wall street needs to focus on fixing America before fixing are wallets

    February 5, 2009 at 1:31 pm |
  59. Marshall

    I think that they could just take a fraction of the one trillion dollars and just make everybody a millionaire so they could just pay off there debts and then have a little money left over for the future. They don't have to make the children under 18 a millionaire. About half of the population is adults so up would only have to spend about 200 or 300 billion dollars. That is a lot less than a $1,000,000,000,000. Thats a lot of zeros. Don't you think?

    February 5, 2009 at 1:35 pm |
  60. Jillian

    I think that spending 1 million dollors a day for a year would be too much for me to spend. I think that if I could do it, then I would help out any of my family members. Make sure they all have good health so they can live a long time. Then I would buy myself stuff.

    February 5, 2009 at 1:38 pm |

    aha... i think i could spend it all, i love to shop... and i will love it to spend all that all day every day for a whole year.. that would be great... i would hvae everything i want and more :]...

  63. Megan

    A million dollars a day is like a dream come true! To spend that much everyday of my life, I wouldn't know where to start, but I wouldn't have a problem about stopping because I don't think in my life I would run out of money!
    I do know that I would try to help out our community and our future in this country by spending the money on something that the people need, not what people want.

    February 5, 2009 at 1:43 pm |
  64. Garrett

    i think i could spend that money in like 10 years and not even think about it.

  65. Ana

    If I had to spend one million dollars a day, I would move to California, buy a house attach all my favorite stores, a spa, and a hair cutting place to my house. Then I would go Africa and help AIDS orphans and spend all my money there.

    February 5, 2009 at 1:47 pm |
  66. Utau

    If I had a trillon dollars first I'd go to Japan and Italy and buy up a million CDs and Anime products that you can only get there or from Ebay, which I'm not allowed to use. Then I'd give it to the people and countries who need it and school funding, because me school really needs and update in things like technology, and heat that goes ALL around the school.

    February 5, 2009 at 2:08 pm |

    I would pay i million to hire many soccer players for my team (Coritiba, Brazil), maybe the hole brazilian squad, than i would try to create a new formula 1 team........

    If i had the chance to spend a million dollars a day. I would give a lot of it to my school and i would also give to different charities. I would also would give to hospitals and other medical centers.

    carl i think that if i had a trillion dollars i buy everthing i wanted three cars a nice house and a dog but then i would just give the rest away to charity or my friends who need it

    February 5, 2009 at 3:08 pm |
  71. Trenton

    O yeah i could totally do it...first i would by purple turf for a school football field...then i would put a dome over it...then pay off my parents bills then try help the economy...if i felt up to it...

    February 5, 2009 at 3:56 pm |
  72. grant

    If I had a million dollars every day, I would send most of it to a charity such as the red cross or something that involes the world hunger issue in africa. If that didn't work I would just buy the biggest mansion EVER and several acers of land then make the worlds largest go-kart track and have rollar coasters and theme parks and a HUGE wave pool.Then have the biggest party ever!

    February 5, 2009 at 3:57 pm |
  73. Drew

    I Could spend 1 million easy. Maybe not all of it but most of it. I would buy great food, game systems, and sports gear. And parobably a sweet car for when I turn 16!!!!! P.S. Carl I think you are the punniest man alive!!!!!

    February 5, 2009 at 4:08 pm |
  74. Kaitlyn

    I think i would probably use the money to help people in my town who cant afford things such as gas, and food, and maybe even their homes. 1 million dollars a day would make a big difference to their lives and i would love to help!

    February 5, 2009 at 4:20 pm |
  75. Chris

    No, I don't think I could spend a trillion dollars. I will never be able to spend a million dollars a day. I probably buy everything I want and it still wouldn't make a difference in the money spent.

    February 5, 2009 at 4:24 pm |
  76. Amy

    I don't think anyone can spend that much money. That is way too much. But if I had to spend it, I would use it to help the environment.

    February 5, 2009 at 4:42 pm |
  78. Alex

    I think that is a CRAZY amount. I have no idea what i would do with a trillion dollars. Maybe I'd buy a really cool car. I can't believe the U.S has that much money.

    February 5, 2009 at 4:55 pm |
  79. Elizabeth

    No, I don't believe that i could. Because in 1 year I couldn't spend something that goes 1/3 high to the moon. If it was a trillion dollars for the rest of my life, I'm sure I could. I would buy a house, car, give money to the homeless, and groceries and the rest to savings for my youngsters!

    Shout out for Miss Rettmanns 2nd block class?!

    February 5, 2009 at 5:06 pm |
  80. Nathan

    I would give half of it to charity, then I would give half of whats left to my town and state, and the other half to the U.S. government. The next day, I would give all the money to the people of the U.S. so it could jumpstart our economy, and I would keep switching every day for a year.

    February 5, 2009 at 5:15 pm |
  81. Holland

    I could most definatly spend one trillion dollars. If I ever had that much. I would do it by giving to charitys and by buying all the stores in the world! Or, i would buy a country, that would be awesome!

    February 5, 2009 at 5:29 pm |
  82. Ryan

    I would do what congress is planning on doing with it. We need to improve this country's failing infrasructure, then invest it in industry (we need new innovative ways to produce goods with "Proudly made in America" stickers on them), then showing all the other countries whos boss by investing billions into education (college grants, funding for school districts). We need more innovative thinkers for the future. If you like that vote in 2028, theres more where that came from.

    February 5, 2009 at 5:36 pm |
  83. John

    Well, if I had a million dollars every day I would feed and house every homeless person in America. Instead of trying to fix parks, like the government is trying to do. I get the whole people need jobs right now but why would a person who lost there job as a banker want to dig ditches? They might as well create jobs that will help our country in a bigger sense. I would also try to lower taxes because that is what got our country into this in the first place. DID you know that if you own a factory in America 45% of your dollar goes to the government? No wonder all the factories go to China. they don't have to pay those taxes. And that is what caused the gigantic job loss. And you know how Benjamin Franklin created Wel-fare it was only supposed to be in action for 5 years. now look it has been like 50 years can you say BIG MISTAKE! So if i had a million dollars every day i would fix all of this,

    February 5, 2009 at 5:38 pm |
  84. Belerie (4 people put together)


    Well, that's easy! We'd give some of it to charity, some to save for college, and buy clothes and eletronics and maybe a unicorn! Haha, just kidding! OH, AND MAYBE A CAR!

    P.S. Your jokes are really funny, Carl!

    If I had that kind of money, I would spend it on nothing.
    I would spend it on Heath Care, and give to people in hospitals that are sick.

    Um, Well I could with all the Technology in the market today, but then again it weighs a third of the moon, so I don't think I can even fit $1 million would even fit in my pocket.

    $1,000,000,000 is unbelievable. It's just putting our economy farther and farther behind. What we should do is let the economy fix itself. Our government should stay out of the economy like Thomas Jefferson belives.

    I know it sounds all goody goody but I would give it to people who need it... As in homeless people, low class people... Stuff like that... I just feel bad for those people.. But of course on the side I would have to bye me a new porshe... Even though I dont have my license... Haha.

    I think the trillion dollar stimulus package would be a great thing to help our economy but it would not help every business. I guess we will have to see what just happens.

  92. tim

    I would spend the money on a cruse ship so that I could have a simple and continues flow of money and lots of paintball stuff so that I and my friends could have lodes of fun.

    February 5, 2009 at 6:24 pm |
  93. Kayla

    If i had a trillion dollars i would donate some to my school. Then go buy my iphone. then put the rest in the savings to i can spend it later in life.

    February 5, 2009 at 6:24 pm |
  94. Carlos

    I think so too but if I spent one trillion dollars on anything. It would be a game.

    I could do that because everybody can. They might not want to though.

    February 5, 2009 at 6:40 pm |
  96. Marissa

    First off, I honestly think that a trillion dollars is TOO much money. What are you supposed to spend it on? If you have time to spend that much money everyday, then you have a little too much time on your hands.

    February 5, 2009 at 6:40 pm |
  97. Ms. Qualls Class

    Shoutout to Ms. Qualls class. We could definitely spend one trillion dollars. If I had a trillion dollars, I would move to Australia!

    Simple economic stimulous. Give every american the home they currently live in. If they are homeless give them one. We have a right to a roof over our head. WE have surplus numbers of homes. This would allow americans to have money to spend on cars and things that would bring americans back to work. Sure some will sit home and do nothing. Sure some will work to buy a better house. Sure some wealthy will hate this redistribution of wealth but surely no one will suffer. WE as a country will rise together and we will fall together if we stop thinking of ourselves and start thinking for what works for the nation. Giving money to the banks who started this big real estate pyramid scheme and walked away with millions of government money for bonuses should be tried in court. It is a crime their greed. Americans wake up take care of your own people.

  99. Destiny

    Let's see, I wouold spen $1,000 everyday on cothes and school supplies.And with a million dollars, that's enough for me to buy a huge house with lots of rooms.And if spending a million dollars every second helps someone, then i would spend it on helping the world

    February 5, 2009 at 7:04 pm |
  100. Ava

    I probably couldent spend 1 trillion dollars, but dont get me wrong because i love shopping so i would probably spend a good bit of it and then i would put a big bit into church so maybe i cud who knows but ill tell you one think it would be nice to have that money especially during this time>

    February 5, 2009 at 7:19 pm |
  101. Kayla

    I would spend my money on my schoool. get myself a nice laptop. and give some to other school programs

    February 5, 2009 at 7:24 pm |
  102. Ruby

    How could I possibly spend $1 million every day for 1 year!!! Well, if I have that kind of chance, I'll start donating to the charities. Yow~

    February 5, 2009 at 7:32 pm |
  103. Dakkota

    If i had a trillion $ I think I would buy a manchan, open my own skate shop, and buy anything when I wanted.

    February 5, 2009 at 7:41 pm |
  104. Kaitlyn

    Honestly I think I could. . . if I gave my purchases to other people besides myself. . . so the next time someone gives me a trillion dollars I will try to spend it in one year!

    February 5, 2009 at 7:42 pm |
  105. Ryan

    trillion dollars is alot of money and i think it should go to the school system or health care because thats where we need it the most

    February 5, 2009 at 7:47 pm |
  106. Hannah

    Wow! If you spent a million dollars everyday you still would not spend a trillion dollars that is amazing. If i had a million dollars i would help people in need, give to charities and save up for college.I would pay Carl Azuz a million dollars a day to stop those PUNS also.

    February 5, 2009 at 7:47 pm |
  107. Stephanie

    $1 trillion? Absolutely impossible. One person could not have that much money at one time. Althought the U.S. most likely has around $12 trillion at the moment, why dont we ask a few questions: What is going to happen when the number keep increasing? How are we going to pay off the immense debt? What is going to happen to us?

    February 5, 2009 at 7:48 pm |
  108. Rachel

    i would donate half.
    Then I would put money to college fund.
    And I will shop last.

    February 5, 2009 at 7:50 pm |
  109. kaitlyn

    I would donate most of it to hospitals, the red cross, and many other places. the rest i would put into my college account or save so i can buy a nice house and pay bills when i grow up.

    February 5, 2009 at 7:57 pm |
  110. Holly

    I think that that quote is amazing. If I had a million dollars to spend every day, I would have no idea where to spend it. I'd porbably put some money away for college, and the rest of my and my family's life... then donate the rest of it to medical research, homeless shelters, helping the enviroment, and things like that.

    February 5, 2009 at 8:19 pm |
  111. Joanne

    I would use that money to shop but later I would still have left over. It would be for my education and for charities and needed families

    February 5, 2009 at 8:27 pm |
  112. Evan

    Could not do it. i couldn't even spend 1 million a day, let alone a trillion. Even Bill Gates would say "whazaaa?"

    February 5, 2009 at 8:29 pm |
  113. Alyssa

    If I had a trillion dollars I'd be shocked!! Once over it I would give a lot of it to the Make-A-Wish Foundation!! Then I'd go shopping with lots of my friend at Abercrombie and other fun stores. I'd save some, and after I got what I wanted I would donate more and give some to my parents!! Oh Yeah enough "Moolah" for a lifetime of fun!!!!

    February 5, 2009 at 8:33 pm |
  114. Arianna

    A trillion dollars?Thats just obserd. Time for Obama to be the "superhero" and take us out of this crisis!

    February 5, 2009 at 8:34 pm |
  115. Amber

    I would buy every one I know there dream car. For me a 2009 Dodge Caliber (No it is NOT a grandma car!!) Then I'd buy a ranch and more horses for it. I would build a big house and put up big pastures for all of my animals...Then I would have to buy food for them. I would go to college and after I had the things I needed I would just save some and donate some to worth while causes. I guess i had that much money I would not be worrying about the teacher's salary I will get when I graduate. hehehe I would also pay Carl to dance on every episode, because he is awesome! GO CARL!!!

    February 5, 2009 at 8:38 pm |
  116. Conrad

    the steps i would use it for, 1. candy (responsibly) 2. donations 3. a car and 4. everything i couldnt think of 😛

    February 5, 2009 at 8:39 pm |
  117. Alyssa

    If I got a trillon dollars I would be shocked at first! I would donate a lot of it to the Make A Wish foundation, which is my favorite charity. I would go on a shopping spree with my friends. I would also save some for future use (college), share it with my family, and donate more. A trilion dollars is a lot to think about!

    February 5, 2009 at 8:40 pm |
  118. Conrad

    oh and more xbox 360 games... 😀

    February 5, 2009 at 8:42 pm |
  119. Brianna

    If I had one trillon dollars. I would Definetly help the economy and give some of the money to starving children in Africa. Or maybe I'd spend it mostly on clothes!

    February 5, 2009 at 8:44 pm |
  120. Selena

    I could spend 1 trillion dollars by building bigger homeless sheltars, so it could hold more people, so less people would love on the streets. i think it's so sad when people live on the street.

    February 5, 2009 at 8:47 pm |
  121. Selena

    I could spend 1 trillion dollars by building bigger homeless shelters, so it could hold more people, so less people would live on the streets. I think it’s so sad when people live on the street.

    February 5, 2009 at 8:49 pm |
  122. Rouba

    I think the first thing i would do with it is probably donate money to hospitals and poor schools. Then i would think about our friends and families that don't have a dad or husband and give it to them, then i would think of buying things for me. A house, clothes, food, and things like that. Then i would put some in my college and save a couple million for a special occasion.

    February 5, 2009 at 8:49 pm |
  123. Rouba

    Ill put it in my life savings and wait until im all grown up to get my own house and get married and then i would buy my house and needs with it.

    February 5, 2009 at 8:52 pm |
  124. Bella

    I would use the money to help our enviroment and help the people that are in need than spend all on ourselves

    February 5, 2009 at 8:55 pm |
  125. Amy

    I would spend the money for the homeless and for the enviroment. Then I would put the rest for education.

    February 5, 2009 at 8:58 pm |
  126. Vera

    If I had a million dollars to spend, yes I would. It would be my money that I earned. If I was responsible with my money, and avoid the economy crisis, I am entitled to freely spend my own money. On the other hand, I would help loved ones if needed, for a million dollars is a great amount of money.

    February 5, 2009 at 9:02 pm |
  127. Erika

    I think that if i would have one million dollars to spend for 365 days i would probably save. with colleges, gas, and the price of just about everything going up. ya it maybe nice to have for the day and get what ever you want. but you be richer then gates if you wanted to at the end. that would be sweeeet.

    February 5, 2009 at 9:05 pm |
  128. Alli

    If i had a million dollars to spend for a whole year i would go shopping everyday with my friends and spend half at the mall but i would donate the other half to charity.

    February 5, 2009 at 9:32 pm |
  129. TJ

    There is now reason to spend a TRILLION DOLLARS to get out of this rescission. they should try a 500 Billion stimulus to take a chunk out of the econamy and if there is any more needed then we should do it at a reasonable amount, but a trillion dollars is WAY TOO MUCH!!!

    February 5, 2009 at 9:39 pm |
  130. Rachel

    I wouldn't want 1$ trillion dollars although, it would be SWEET! I would just waste the money like how the House is planning on spending it. It would too much of a responibility to me and so far I think it is too much of a responsibility for the House! Don't waist unneeded money and think smart!!!!!

    February 5, 2009 at 10:08 pm |
  131. mark

    Wow I did not even understand te concept of $1 TRILLION dollars
    but i do not be spending that much money when even the government
    is in dept

  132. Chelsey

    I really doubt I could...but I'm sure there is someone somewhere who could! A lot of good could come of $1 million a day!

    February 5, 2009 at 10:26 pm |
  133. Evan

    Yes, i could spend 1 trillior dollars every day i would buy a 12 cars a mansion and a few stores to get free stuff

    February 5, 2009 at 11:15 pm |

    I whould give some to my mom, dad, charity, me and my family.

    I'd spend it on a hot car so I could drive to CNN student news head quarters and meet Carl Azuz! Then me and him could drive around town and eat ice cream sundaes all day!

    If I had 1 trillior dollars to spend i would spend on everything. I would buy me and my family a new house and the rest of my family new house to. Then i would by everyone the car of the dreams. I would build my own power plant (all green). I would Invites in the stock market. Help pay off some of the national debit.

    February 6, 2009 at 9:09 am |
  138. Patrick

    If I had $1 million to spend every day for a year, I don’t know what I’d do. I would probably have everything I would want in the first week, so after that, I would probably donate the money and give some to family and friends. But seriously, that’s a lot of money, and spending it all would be a pain.

    February 6, 2009 at 9:10 am |
  139. Jesse

    If I had $1 million to spend for 1 year, I would buy many things. I may buy top of the line computers, clothes, house, and foods. If I have some money left over, I would either put it in the bank or buy more houses to rent and get more money. I would also buy some cars that are both luxury and sporty. I definitely can spend $1 million everyday.

    February 6, 2009 at 9:13 am |
  140. Laura

    I don’t think you could spend a trillion dollars. Even if you had that kind of money. Where did you get the money? Where is the money coming from? If we keep spending how are we going to get out of the hole we are digging if we keep spending more and more money. What is the future going to hold for us if the economic is bad?

    February 6, 2009 at 9:14 am |
  141. Michael

    One year of $1 million a day? That’s insane! I wouldn’t be able to spend that without some feeling of unwillingness. If it were me, I would save some of that money in a bank account but then buy college, donate to some charities and then definitely get more musical equipment.

    February 6, 2009 at 9:19 am |
  142. Jason

    if its going to help our economy, i guess its something we could do. but if this is something that were going to have to do year after year, which we have been doing, then i think were just going to ebd up with more problems.

    February 6, 2009 at 9:54 am |
  143. Ailema

    I would buy whatever I wanted, duh!!! Somone with that kind of money would have no rules or boundaries!!! It would be awesome to buy all of the things i could ever dream of, and then some!!!!!

    February 6, 2009 at 10:20 am |
  144. Michael

    I think our country should spend at least half of the money on conservation and global warming problems instead of spending it all on 1 thing

    p.s love the show

    February 6, 2009 at 10:32 am |
  145. nadya

    if i had to spend a million dollars i wouldnt know were to start. i would take all my friends out and buy all my friends wut eva they want and i would donate alot of it . i think that it is a really hard for some kids to think of a way to spend a million dollars a day but i would b kinda fun but i wouldnt b the same as it would b to earn the money......

    February 6, 2009 at 10:38 am |
  146. Kenadie

    If I had a Trillion Dollars I would go shopping everyday and I would give alot of money to charity!!!! It would be kinda hard tospend that much money cause if u a million dollars every day it would still take awhile to spend all of that!!!!

    February 6, 2009 at 10:42 am |
  147. Tyler

    No, it would be impossible for any human being to ever do. There is not enough things in the entire world that you could spend that money on.

    February 6, 2009 at 10:45 am |
  148. austin

    i bet you a trillion dollars that i could spend it.. see i just lied and told the truth at the same time. i would not be able to spend it but i bet it away. hahahaha

    February 6, 2009 at 10:47 am |
  149. CJ

    if i was to have that much money i would go to the homless and give them a million each the i would go and buy a house bigger then Windsor Castle and pay cash for it. i would have like 10 lambos and 10 Ferrari's 430, and then i would buy my mom and dad anything they wont

    February 6, 2009 at 10:49 am |
  150. Griffin

    There is no way I would be able to spend a million dollars every day of the year. I would have to donate most of it to use it up every day. however, I think I could buy a few sports cars here and there, but if you give a little bit of it to a lot of people, then that's one way to help the economy.

    February 6, 2009 at 10:50 am |
  151. concerned brat

    not sure if i could spend a trillion dollars like that. I just know that our gov can and does. We foot the bill. How about congress taking a pay cut to help us out. Like thats going to happen, right? how about they cut spending? Or does Pelosi not understand this concept?

    February 6, 2009 at 11:04 am |
  152. Sean

    If I had one million dollars to spend everyday I could do it. First I would buy some crazy house with a lot of land and pay it off within about 50 to 100 days. Then I would buy a golf course for my family. I would put enough for any sports tickets I would ever want. And I would probably invest in Apple or Microsoft firguring that they've got to get better sometime.

    February 6, 2009 at 11:21 am |

  155. Colin

    I would buy aplle computers.

    February 6, 2009 at 12:27 pm |
  156. Carley

    First i would pay all of my bil and my house payment. Then with all of the left over money I would give to all of the people that didnt have anything!!!! Even if i had more i would spend it on all the stuff that i wanted and then if there was anymore i would give it to the children that didnt have a home or a family and they were just on the road all the time and stealing stuff from stores to live!!!! =]]

    February 6, 2009 at 12:59 pm |
  157. paxton

    where is the money coming from? r we borrowing it from other countries or nation.
    also watching CSPAN that McCain is a pain all he does is picking @ everything. he needs to step down all he wants to do is move his campaign bill he ran on.

    February 6, 2009 at 1:02 pm |
  158. samantha

    anyone right now in this economy would definately be able to spend 1 trillion dollars between bills, debt, mortgage, credit cards and much more ever one could use that kind of cash. i would put most of it in the bank but spend part of it. the government spending more is not helping because it is from tax dollars which we have to pay more and more of which puts us in more debt oveerall making the situation worse. STOP SPENDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    February 6, 2009 at 1:28 pm |
  159. Bailey

    I would probably move out of my house (with my fam, of course!!) and buy a bigger house for us. Also, my bro will be getting his driver's liscense in August, so I would probably buy him the car of his dreams, and pay for gas (cause he'll probably be driving my around most of the time). I would also buy myself, mom, and dad new cars, and just keep mine until I turn 16. The rest would probably either go to my school or the local animal shelter. Either way, to a good cause!!

    February 6, 2009 at 2:34 pm |

  162. Christie

    If I spent a million dollars a day, there's a lot of things I'd want to buy, but I would eventually not want it. But I'd definetly buy myself a new house and give a lot to charities and and donate it to help people help the environment.

    February 6, 2009 at 5:51 pm |
  163. Lance

    anyone could spend a million dollars now and if i had a million dollars i would spend it on video games and probably a new phone and a lot of everything else

    February 6, 2009 at 5:52 pm |
  164. Marilla

    I think that it would be hard to spend one million dollars everyday. I would probably give some to charities and other organizations like the
    Red Cross. I think that the government should really consider the package before passing it because it needs to include everything that is critically important we can't just go spending a trillion dollars on anything. I probably couldn't do it!

    February 6, 2009 at 7:45 pm |
  165. Ms. Kennedy's Class

    Shoutout to Ms. Kennedy's Class
    I think that we could spend a trillion dollars. We could use it to pay off bills, expand our school, put in a new track, and many other things. We would probably give some to charity as well. We could help others who are less fortunate.

    February 6, 2009 at 7:53 pm |
  166. Sean

    I wouldn't be able to spend that kind of money. If I had that money, in 500 years or so, my decendants would still be trying to find a way to spend it.

    February 6, 2009 at 10:32 pm |
  167. sadie

    i bet anyone could spend one trillion dollars right now because of bills,debt,mortgage,credit cards and stuff for their kids(most expensive) i would try to keep it in the bank but would take out some of it......alot of it
    (im not good at saving money)

    February 7, 2009 at 4:36 am |

    I would totally be able to do it! Giving money away, going into space, making flying cars – I wouldn't be bored that's for sure!

    February 7, 2009 at 11:39 pm |
  171. Maddy

    If i had a trillion dollars I think I'd put other need before mine so I would pay to help retirement homes, the forests, donate some to the orphanage, and help poor communities! Then I'll use the rest which will be only $500 on my self

    February 8, 2009 at 12:38 am |
  172. Kara and Emily

    Together we could spend that. All we would have to do is go shopping around the world and buy almost everything that we saw!!!

    P.S. WE LOVE YOU CARL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    February 8, 2009 at 2:02 pm |
  173. Amir

    wow the government is taking a lot of money, and i would not be able to spend 1 million$ in 1 day for 365 days because in one day i would have all that i need.

    February 8, 2009 at 9:29 pm |
  174. Grace

    I could! Not on myself of course, but there are millions and millions of awesome causes out there that could benefit from that money. As some people have said before: Wildlife areas, space programs, poor communities, and medical clinics! Especially the medical clinics. I believe we can do anything, as long as we have the money for the research and the resources to do it. We could find a cure for cancer with a trillion dollars, and so much more.

    I could definitely spend 1 trillion dollars. But, I wouldn't want the responsibility of that money to be all on me. Money needs to be used wisely, going to the right causes, or it could take a turn for the worse.

    February 8, 2009 at 9:43 pm |

    I could definitely spend a trillion dollars! i would give some away, i would buy the house i want and rebuild it, and buy Cars and houses next to mine for my family and my best friend Kenzie! i luv ya kenz!

  178. Kayla

    I would probally not be able to do it. I am really just a window shopper so I would rather put it in a savings.True thre could be one million things to buy out there but why spend thatt money where you can make a ton of things! I mean like why would I buy another new movie even though i could watch one of the older ones I have. Some people can shop all day but not me. I don't think i could make it.

    February 9, 2009 at 5:35 pm |

    ...plus once the money is gone it is gone. If you are use to going out and shopping everyday, your life style shall change after all that money is gone!

  180. Loreen

    I would definitely donate some of it to different charity's, but I would also use it to go towards college!!!!!!!!!! Oh, but of course I would have to use at least some of it for shopping!!!!!!!!

    February 9, 2009 at 5:44 pm |
  181. Jack

    I would help our poor economy

    February 9, 2009 at 6:10 pm |
  182. Zelly

    I think i could. I would go to the mall and buy everything in it. Then I'd buy the mall itself.

    February 9, 2009 at 6:50 pm |
  183. Gizel

    I could because I woulsd buy vans and more vans of every color, go to aeropostale and buy really all I want,and go to many other stores and places to spend all that money. Maybe even buy a new cell phone

    February 9, 2009 at 8:28 pm |
  184. Kyle

    holy cow that a lot of money. i would probably buy a few cars and a HUGE house and donate some to charity and of course id give some to charity and whats left would go to my family and into a savings account for later

    February 9, 2009 at 10:27 pm |
  185. Jimbo

    I would do what the government does and buy land and build houses and offer reduced food and I would even offer free health care to the people. Then I would feel like a king as I bought expensive cars and jets. Then I would warn the people of 'global warming' and ask that they ride bikes to work.

    February 10, 2009 at 8:19 am |
  186. David

    I think that i could spend it all in a year if i really worked hard at it. I would buy homes all over the world as well as valuable automoblies.
    I would aslo donate millions to charity and help aid Africa. The world woulf be a great place to live.

    February 10, 2009 at 8:49 am |
  187. JESSiCA[*

    If I $1 trillion dollars I think I might spend some of it, but save the rest, and invest it. And if I needed it well I would have it, unlike some other people (gone in a week)

    February 10, 2009 at 10:05 am |
  188. Danielle

    i would use that money to help my parents pay off there debt and I would probably by a condo and a black mercadies... even though i'm only 13 years old.

    February 10, 2009 at 10:37 am |
  189. Tasha

    i could spend a trillion dollars if i went shopping everyday and got whatever i wanted and i would spend the other half on helping the homeless, feeding the starving children in africa, and defending juvinile delinquints because everyone deserves a second chance!

    February 10, 2009 at 11:17 am |
  190. Bryce and Charlie

    We would spend it on a new house,skateboards and drums and guitars...dont forget a skatepark with a pool too!

    February 10, 2009 at 12:59 pm |
  191. jonathan

    I think the average american spends about 3x that in their life time or close to it. So yes it is possible to spend that much and a lot more!

    February 10, 2009 at 1:56 pm |
  192. Breanna(-;

    i would def. go shopping, and lots of it! give some to charity, get a new car, get a new house, go to the MOA! haha and go on all the rides!

  193. jacob

  194. Caity

    if i had a millon dollars to spend every day, i would spend it on candy and junk food, School lunches for everyone in my whole school,
    save my dad's business. And buy me a new room and new clothes and new sneakers like everyday. And i would go save the poor people in Africa too. And Maybe invest some if it into my tution or save it all too.

    February 10, 2009 at 5:20 pm |
  195. Issa

    If I could spend 1 million dollars a day for 365 days I would buy every McDonalds in the United States and Mexico!

    February 10, 2009 at 8:55 pm |
  196. Hannah

    I have no idea what I'd do with that much money. The most money I've ever had at one time is $200 and that was 2 years worth of birthday and Christmas money. I can't imagine having a million dollars to spend everyday!

    February 11, 2009 at 7:57 am |
  197. Amber

    I don't think that I could spent that much money. Yes, I want a lot of things but that's mabye too much money...but that may be impossible.

    February 11, 2009 at 8:59 am |
  198. Kyeria

    I would throw everything away in my closet. And go shopping!!!!!

    February 11, 2009 at 12:18 pm |
  199. L*OG@N

    I think that 1 trillion dollars is a lot money for a stimulus plan. I mean yea there is a lot of middle class people but still 1 TRILLION DOLLARS!!!!! If I had that much money I would go shopping everyday and not just on like little 100 dollar ones they would be like 1000 dollar shopping sprees. lol

    February 11, 2009 at 1:54 pm |
  200. Rachel

    If I had the money, man, I would spend it all at the mall with my best friends!

    February 11, 2009 at 6:01 pm |
  201. sonya

    I could spend a trillion dollars I'm a big time shopaholic i would take my friends to the mall and buy them things !!!!!!!!!! =]

    February 12, 2009 at 10:26 am |
  202. Rashael

    I think this stimulus package is dumb! Why should the U.S. spend millions of dollars on grass?!?! We need a better idea!

    February 12, 2009 at 11:29 am |
  203. darby

    I dont think I could spend that much money in a year I could by like 3 houses and 20 flat screen tv's. I don't think the governmnt needs to spend that much money.

    February 12, 2009 at 12:14 pm |
  204. Kyna

    First id help my parents out, buy the farm so it would always be safe from the government. set up some funds for schooling. then find ways to help others.

    February 12, 2009 at 1:49 pm |
  205. Maddie

    I couldn’t spend 1 trillion dollars everyday for a year; I could spend it in a year, but definitely not every single day- because it would take up my whole life just spending money every single minute of every single day. I would love to have that kind of money, but I wouldn’t like to have to spend it all in a day.

    February 12, 2009 at 1:55 pm |
  206. angelo

    If I had 1 million dollars to spend I would spend it on buying a indore skate park, and make kids pay $5-$10 bucks to skate.

    February 12, 2009 at 4:17 pm |
  207. ♥Morgan♥

    ya sure if you bought the country of Argentina, and Mexico! watev. if you spend a trillion dollars your pretty sick

  208. ♥Gina

    ya sure if i was buying like a mantion and like 50 cars, and make my own clothes line... sure!!

    February 12, 2009 at 4:24 pm |
  209. Alex

    I could, with all those designer clothes out there... And the houses, and music, and cars. It would only take me a couple of months to spend.

    February 12, 2009 at 7:02 pm |
  210. dylan

    February 13, 2009 at 2:21 pm |
  213. kaylee

    I would give the money to people who need it like the salvation army and other places. But i would also keep enough so i dont go broke. Also so other people don't. Also part of my money would go into my future kids college funds!!

    February 13, 2009 at 2:22 pm |
  214. Jose'

    I'd probably use it for college and donate a portion of it to environmental protection companies. But after that, I'm gonna go WILD on that load of cash!!! X D

    February 13, 2009 at 5:17 pm |
  215. casey :)

  216. Aliciya

    February 14, 2009 at 8:56 pm |
  217. shannon

    i think it would be easy to spend $1 trillion. it might take me awhile or not because i am a huge shoper. so i would be buying a lot of stuff every day!

    February 17, 2009 at 9:32 am |
  218. Nicole

    WISH I HAD IT :}

    February 17, 2009 at 10:51 am |
  219. Michael

    February 17, 2009 at 10:53 am |
  220. tasha

    hi its me again, i just wanted to add that i would spend the other have on the homeless and bye them a home and a refrigerator and food and stuff like that, and i would spend some on adopting children from africa so they would have somewhere to go because there is not enough shelters for them all over the world. also i would donate money to obama so i could help with the new stimulas package!

    February 17, 2009 at 10:54 am |
  221. Nick

    If i had a trillion dollars, i would spend it on the community i live in!

    February 17, 2009 at 12:46 pm |
  222. Cheyanne

    I would probably run out of things to get unless I was actually at a store or wherever it is I'm going to bye something. But I would give half of it to the homelss and endangered animals. With the rest I would give it to local animal shelters to help take care of the pets who do not have homes. I think I would probably spend the rest on my family and me so we can live a happy life together and I would put some away for college ust in case.

    February 17, 2009 at 1:20 pm |
  223. Lauren

    :3 I actually could spend 1 trillion dollars. I'd spend about 1mil on my "scene" look. On cloths, eyeshadow, hair stuff, & ect.
    I'd spend about 1 bil on the econamy around me.
    Then i'd buy gifts for my friends.

    Thats just how i roll.

    February 17, 2009 at 2:34 pm |
  224. Ross

    All of it would go flying into our economy. Buying american cars, american clothing, and american food. Then giving anything I don't want to american people. That's what we need to get out of this mess.

    February 18, 2009 at 3:09 pm |
  225. timothy and nicholas

  227. soo

    If I have million dollars, I will buy my parents a house and car. Also I will buy what i WANT TO GET! I think it's impossible to have million dollars to me.

    February 19, 2009 at 12:20 am |
  228. Seon

    If I have a million dollar everyday, I would donate for poor people and
    I would take a trip around the world with my family. The rest of the money, I will use it at depositing in the bank. Also,I will save a lot of money and I will only use it at important moment.

    February 19, 2009 at 1:35 am |
  229. Hye

    If I'll have million dollars, I save almost money. And I'll give my parents to say thank you. If I 'll have rest money, I 'll go to traveling with friend. But it will be traveling alone. I'll dub for poor people. And I 'll work to make my money.

    February 19, 2009 at 8:23 am |
  230. Derek

  236. hyeungnim

Buy a PC room. I can buy anything, for example, take a bath full of money.(This is what I wanted to do in my whole life!)

    February 20, 2009 at 7:43 am |
  237. Sarah

    i would go to the mall, probably go see lots and lots of movies, go buy 5 horses, lots of dogs, some cows, 3 goats, and some chickens. And then the stuff that I need to take care of them, and then lots and lots of land. Then I would go to lots of different countries, give lots and lots of money to the poor, academic research, hospitals. Then I'd buy lots of food.

    February 20, 2009 at 11:01 am |
  238. Jade

    If i had a trillion dollars than i could spend it well. First i helped homeless people and many live alone. Second i bought many expensive car and magnificient house. Finally i made a large enterprise and i worked that three times a week and i traveled twice a week and i gave my parents or goverment my rest money .

    February 20, 2009 at 10:36 pm |
  239. Hayeon

    If I had a trillion dollars, I'd like to save money and I'll prepare with my family or friends to travel around the world. If money remain, I'll give to money for poor people.

    February 22, 2009 at 10:22 am |
  244. zach

    I guess it would be fair to put a small profit of the money into my dad's church, maybe a few sparkly diamonds rapped around in 1,000,000 dollars, maybe I'll even buy NASA or a land of chocolate.

    February 22, 2009 at 10:27 am |

  251. Courtney

    I would spend it easily. I would spend it on stuff like candy, pop, ds games, and i would buy grapes and string cheese (they taste good together). Anyways i suport prez Obama on this all the way in the end i'm sure it will be okay.

    February 24, 2009 at 2:08 pm |
  252. Courtney

    I would also give15,000 dollars to schools that need it like ones that don't have enough money to buy computer and books and provide lunches. then i would give 15,000 dollars to have cities build homless shelters for famlies, soup kitchens, provide doctors that will help the homless with sicknesses, and i would give 15,000 dollars to the poor ( not each person) and tell them to go get new clothes, food, and get themselfs a job. So i would help them get back on their feet!!!

    February 24, 2009 at 2:17 pm |
