I'm not sure where Rep. Adam Kinzinger was getting his numbers when he said this line on Meet the Press this morning, but apparently David Gregory wasn't interested in trying to find out because he allowed the so-called "tea party" Republican freshman say this with absolutely no follow up. None.

KINZINGER: The amount of cuts that we're talking about making in ten years, is almost equivalent to what we spent in ten minutes in the stimulus in 2009.

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 was estimated to have been $787 billion and a good deal of that was on tax cuts. I guess it's asking too much of David Gregory to do a little follow up here, because he didn't bother.
