    But you weren't concerned during the Bush regime? I am truly concerned for your judgement.

    So you think nothing should be done because it's not enough money and it might be to late? We should just let the economy fail more?

    Think about it. If it takes 3 years to build a bridge, or a highway, you don't spend all the money at once. What good would a stimulus package be that ran out of money in a year?

    Correct. Any attempts to stabilize the economy that lack the sheer quantity needed will only prolong the hardship.

    With the length proposed with this stimulus, the total outlay should eclipse $5 trillion, not $800 billion.

    Mark my words, more and more stimulus packages will follow.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    The entire point of the stimulus is a temporary jolt to the economy, where all outlays are only temporary.

    A real one...

    I thought Bush spent too much, like a drunken sailor.

    This is less a stimulus and more an increase in the yearly budget.

    A lot of the items in it will be renewed for years on end.

    I agree, and let me commend you for jumping on Bush over his bailout too. There are some who supported everything Bush did, including his bailout, and criticize Obama for doing the same. It's good to see a few people who regard this as a load of crap, whether Bush or Obama does it.

    Looks like it is moving forward. I hope Obama knows the outcome of this plan will be a direct reflection on him as a leader.

    God damn **** c**k **** bitch expletive expletive expletive. ****ing democrats.

    I hope they castrate the ones who voted with the dems.

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.
