What does $787 billion buy? 3.5 million jobs, at $225,000 each, according to Obama (excludes interest on the national debt). Now, Obama wants to buy health care:

Obama seeks $634B over 10 years for health care

"...The health care provisions are meant to start a dialogue with Congress over how to provide coverage for an estimated 48 million uninsured...Independent experts say providing coverage for all could easily cost more than $1 trillion over 10 years, a figure the Obama administration does not dispute.

Whatever Congress does, the documents said, "must put the United States on a clear path to cover all Americans." Obama has called on Congress to send him a health care reform bill this year.

The $634 billion would be on top of recent health care expansions approved by Congress.
