How much money will they print?

Ben Bernanke is floating the idea of another direct stimulus package:

“With the economy likely to be weak for several quarters, and with some risk of a protracted slowdown, consideration of a fiscal package by the Congress at this juncture seems appropriate,” Bernanke said in prepared testimony to the panel.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has said an economic recovery bill could be as large as $150 billion. Economists have told leading Democrats the plan should be twice the size.

My simple question is how much money will they print to keep us afloat? How much will it hurt us in the long run?
