    Because when He gives it to us, it's different.

    Hopefully your right and it doesnt pass, it would be nice to dodge the first bullet.

    Re: GOP leaders doubt stimulus bill will pass Senate

    I don't blame Obama, I don't blame the GOP, I blame the House Dems. There is a LOT of unnecessary spending on this bill.

    One of the few things I agree with McCain on is what he said to CNN's John King on King's program "State of the Union."

    McCain stated "Many of the policy changes they put in have nothing to do with stimulating the economy and everything to do with their agenda which they're unable to get through." Maybe, maybe not. But what he said next was real genius:

    "But, at times, you put things together because of the efficiency of getting something done."

    The official article:

    McConnell says GOP trying to 'reform' bill, not block it - CNN.com

    Wow, I completely agree with that. Dems are not thinking straight. Honestly if the bill passes as it is, I won't have a huge problem with it, but I still think it needs revising.

    And I side with the Dems most of the time, goes to show Nancy that many American liberals don't appreciate "money-throwing."

    This bill is the Democrats' Patriot Act -- ushered in during a time of crisis while they demand it be passed quickly and with little to no debate, pushing things unrelated to the crisis at hand while vastly expanding the authority of government.

    The difference, of course, is that the Patriot Act can be repealed tomorrow (why isn't that on the agenda?) and its ill effects will be alleviated immediately. If this monstrosity passes and the money is borrowed and spent, we'll be living with it for decades.

    Which is exactly why there is nothing wrong with hoping it, and then, by extension, Obama, will fail -- the long-term damage from this package is far greater than doing nothing.
