    What I find curious about this debate is that Democrats don't need Republicans, so why all the angst about not getting any support for their poorly thought out legislation that will strap generations of Americans in debt?

    You would be correct Goobsters; another one of the MANY bi-partisan acts the Democrats ran from politically.

    How can it be bi-partisan if one of the two parties ran from it?

    It's not a stimulus package, it's a payoff plan, The dems are rewarding the people & companies that voted for them.

    There's a few token "rebate" checks being thrown towards the poor and stupid to make it appear like the government is taking care of the little guy.

    The rest of the pork is disguised. If there were true transparency in this administration of "change & hope", then each earmark would be itemized, with the sponsers name attached.

    New administration, same old bull****.

    They voted FOR the acts before they politically claimed they were against them.

    This time it is worse however; they are spending trillions they just don’t have which means they will also be printing the money to pay the obligations which means inflation combined with high unemployment.

    But it doesn't end there; on top of all this nonsense is a constant fear mongering in order to rationalize/justify the porkulus. This is hardly encouraging, uplifting or likely to inspire confidence in the marketplace.

    If this is the change OTHERS wanted, it certainly is going the WRONG direction.
