Governors seek $1 trillion dollars federal assistance

I just read in a news story that five governors are seeking federal aid of $1 trillion dollars. As someone once said, a billion here, a billion there--pretty soon we are talking about real money.

With the federal spending package that Congress and Obama are talking about, and now this request from the state, it looks like near $2 trillion dollars in federal spending is being proposed.

How in the world will we pay for this?

My friend Chuck Monan, triva buff, let me know that it was Everett Dirksen, Senator from Illinois, who said, "A billion here. A billion there. Pretty soon we're talking about real money."

Thanks, Chuck!
