$3.8 trillion is such a big number that Sarah Palin can't remember it without writing notes on her hand.

In February, Palin found herself the butt of many jokes after she was caught using answers written on her hand a speech to the Tea Party. Palin called the trick "a poor man's version of a teleprompter."

The former Alaska governor returned to the use of crib notes during an interview with Fox News' Chris Wallace Sunday. Palin explained that the expiring Bush tax cuts would mean the largest tax increase in American history.

"Democrats are poised now to cause this largest tax increase in US history," Palin told Wallace. "It's tax increase of $3.8 trillion over the next ten years and it will have an effect on every single American who pays income tax.

"My palm isn't large enough to have written all my notes down on," she admitted.

"What do you have written on your hand?" asked Wallace.

"$3.8 trillion in the next ten years so I didn't say $3.7 trillion and get dinged by the liberals saying I didn't know what I was talking about," Palin answered.

Liberals may also question Palin's claim that all Americans will be hit by increasing taxes. A chart by the Wall Street Journal shows that taxes for single Americans making less than $300,000 will stay the same under President Barack Obama's tax policy for 2011. Taxes for married couples making less than $300,000 will actually go down.
