Well yeah!  Health reform is $900 billion!

...over ten years, so $90 billion a year, before they raise taxes on
something to pay for it.

Contrast: the defense bill was $680 billion, passed and signed without a

Stimulus was $800 billion... over two years, so actually $400

Inconsistent units: friend of obfuscators everywhere.
