Two Thousand McDonald’s Apple Pies Each
Now I understand the scale of the meltdown. Two thousand is a lotta apple pies; but two thousand each??

Around here, McDonald's Apple Pies are on the dollar menu, two for a dollar. So obviously McDonald's wants to get in on the Medicare Part D program for Apple Pies. No negotiation on the price. But they probably could have reduced that number by 90% if someone had looked up how much Halliburton is charging out troops for Apple pies.
But really, these kinds of analogies in the media are shameful.. Why don't they say what multiple of this 700 Billion would have paid for the S-Chip program for health care for children that Bush vetoed. By my calculations, you could have paid for roughly 25 S-Chip programs for health care for children. We only needed one, so the rest could have been used to help adults without health insurance.
