    Okay, here you are in a nutshell. America bailed out Mexico in 1995, another Democratic move that transpired despite warnings of failure from Republicans. It worked, and it only cost $52 billion.

    "By most criteria Mr. Clinton's decision to act as lender of last resort has apparently paid off. While Mexico's recession has been deeper than expected and unemployment remains punishingly high, exports have surged. And in spite of pessimistic predictions from critics of the bailout, Mexico has managed to refinance the short-term debts that led it to the brink of default without exhausting its line of credit with the United States Treasury."

    Can you be specific as to what is good?

    Sure:
    1 - $38 billion to reduce States' share of Medicaid costs
    2 - $25 billion in loans to the auto industry
    3 - tax deductions on new car purchases retroactive to November 2008
    4 - $22 billion in loans for small businesses
    5 - 10% increase in food stamp benefits
    6 - $13.5 billion for highways, bridges, mass transit, airports and AMTRAK
    7 - $2.5 billion for school repairs
    8 - $1billion for border security
    9 - 500 million to hire new police nationwide
    10 - community disaster loans for 50% of pre-storm revenue


    Now, if you will please cite some concrete reasons the stimulus plan is unacceptable to Republicans?

    This is a good thing if this does not pass, as it is no stimulus package, but a spending liberal wish list package.
    Where are all those that poo-pood the tax rebates we got under GWB?

    This isnt economic stimulus, this is welfare,

    Of course, that's higher taxes for the rich.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    No, no -- He's giving us $500 more.
    Because when He gives it to us, it's different.
