Entry Title Date
A Choice Of Two Futures September 14, 2012
Rob Woodall, R-GA
"Now, if you want to know how much a trillion is, Madam Speaker, I speak to a lot of school groups back home, and we try to break those zeros into things that matter. If you began on the day that Jesus Christ was born and if you wasted $1 million a day, 7 days a week from the day Jesus Christ was born through today, you would have to throw away $1 million a day every day, 7 days a week for another 734 years to throw away your first $1 trillion—your first. The President proposes to raise taxes on the American people by $2 trillion."
Motion To Instruct Conferees On H.R. 4348, Surface Transportation Extension Act Of 2012, Part Ii June 7, 2012
Jeffrey Duncan, R-SC
"But let me just tell you, if we decided to get serious about paying back our Nation’s creditors, and we did it at the rate of $20 million a day, and we did that every day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year—and, ladies and gentlemen, listen up—if we did that every day of the year, from the time Jesus Christ was born until now, we have only paid back $14.9 trillion of our debt, less than what we owe, at the rate of $20 million a day, for 746,000 days that it’s been."
Government Spending May 18, 2012
Rob Woodall, R-GA
"I’ll give you an example, Mr. Speaker. If you started a government on the day Jesus Christ was born, and you borrowed $1 million a day to fund your government from the day Jesus Christ was born until today, 7 days a week you’re borrowing that money through today, you would have to continue to borrow $1 million a day every day, 7 days a week for another 700 years to borrow your first $1 trillion. Your first $1 trillion, Mr. Speaker."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 3581, Budget And Accounting Transparency Act Of 2012 February 7, 2012
Rob Woodall, R-GA
"You talk about being the wind at the backs of small businesses, Mr. Speaker. I tried to get my mind around what $15 trillion—on its way to $16 trillion—in debt means. Do you know, if you’re a small business owner in America and if you’d started a business on the day that Jesus Christ was born and if you’d been so bad at it that you’d lost $1 million a day, every day, 7 days a week, Mr. Speaker, from the day Jesus was born until today, you would have to continue to lose $1 million a day every day, 7 days a week, for another 700 years to lose your first $1 trillion?"
Reflections From The Day December 20, 2011
Rob Woodall, R-GA
"Mr. Speaker, I hope you haven’t had to put anything on your credit card during this Christmas season, but I’ve got a lot of friends and family who have. Money is tight. Here in the Christmas season, if you opened up your credit card account on the day that Jesus Christ was born and if you put $500 on that credit card and if you put $500 on it again the next day and the next day and the next day and the next day, 7 days a week, Mr. Speaker, from the day that Jesus Christ was born until today, you would have to continue to put $500 a day on that credit card every day, 7 days a week, for another 700 years to put on your credit card the kind of debt that the Senate bill puts on America’s children’s credit card next year alone."
