Jesus, ACORN, Earmarks and the Stimulus

As the Senate winds down its debate on the economic stimulus package, some old talking points are gaining new life. For example, Sen. Mitch McConnell just said that if you spent $1 million a day since Jesus was born, you would still not come to the $787 billion in the bill.
