    I don't know what you're reading ... what I'm reading says nearly 2/3rds of those polled wanted the bill to pass.

    I'm sorry, I didn't hear the constructive ideas from the loyal opposition. Is that because they have no ideas, nor are the particularly loyal to America either? Hard to believe we have an entire political party that is willing to put the welfare of America at risk just so they can return to power. The entire Republican party should be rounded up and shot as traitors.

    Let's see... eat **** (more failed stimulus) or eat nothing (no ideas).... I choose nothing. That was easy.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Of course it's just my opinion, hence I said, "I believe." I believe that because I don't see Republicans doing anything to promote economic growth but see plenty of examples of them blocking bills, like they did last night, which do.

    Again, Democrats had the4 votes to pass the bill had Republicans not filibustered it.
    Again, according to the article that is anything but clear.

    Democratic support for the bill wavered this week, as several Democrats said they would vote for moving the bill forward, but against the bill itself.

    What I'm reading is that you wish to spin things. When the poll asked about individual portions people supported those things. WHen asked about the bill in general, like most people, they had no idea what was actually in it so they couldn't say.

    But the numbers for the bill only spike when Americans learn about its provisions in some detail. When NBC pollsters asked for a simple up-or-down appraisal of the bill, minus any policy details, the same group of respondents expressed less than half the level of support that they later showed. "When asked simply if Congress should pass the legislation or not, 30 percent of respondents answer yes, while 22 percent say no; 44 percent have no opinion," according to NBC.

    Some detail..........What details? Anything about none of the tax increases going to the deficit? About how it would further harm S.S.?

    Imagine this.

    But when the legislation's details are included in a follow-up question -- that it would cut payroll taxes, fund new road construction, extend unemployment benefits, and that it would be paid for by increasing taxes on the wealthy -- 63 percent say they favor the bill and 32 percent oppose it.

    They tell them about what they see as a positive and people are for it. Never mind that was only part of the bill. Why the deceit to make a point if it was so popular?

    The vast majority of the people supporting the bill do so solely because of the name not it's content, not unlike the Patriot Act.

    From what I can tell, that was first reported by the BBC, which made the claim without naming a single Senator who said that -- and then the BCC pulled that part out of their article just 2 hours after they first released it.
