A new low for CNN. Except for the auto bailout which is about $0.09 trillion the rest of the $3.9 trillion stealth stimulus in the graphic is monetary stimulus and not fiscal. And again not every fiscal stimulus is spending either ...

But in my defense I still don't think this makes any sense: how is this related to the fact that the US government did NOT spend more $1000 billion dollars like Mangu-Ward says

What does more $1000 billion mean? And please don't say that a thousand billion is the same as a trillion because more trillion wouldn't make any sense either.
I said that because you had gone pretty far afield of my original thought. And there is a than missing so it should read more than $1000 billion.
