    Good point. It is very scary that any form of "free" government would deliberately create such an enormous pile of words with the principal that the tax payers will pay for it while not premitting us to see it!!!. What was the "RUSH" to get this through? Why not wait for a full review by scholars and economists and the media? To know now that our government thinks so little of its people is reason to overthrow it by any and all means. Is this what we voted for? Is this representation? We have obvioulsy become passive sheep and WE HAVE RECEIVED WHAT WE DESERVE.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    Obama promised that all bills would be available for 5 days before he signs them.


    He lied.

    How about. Can you think of a better way to stimulate the economy other than mice conservation?
    Listen up Rush... er, Rev. It's not mice conservation. That's just another in a long list of deceit from your side of the isle.

    If a family takes on debt to increase their living standards, are they really getting richer or actually poorer?

    The basic principles also do apply to nations, thus borrowing to sustain a living standard which is above ones ability, a standard that has been reached by debt in the first place, its unsustainable and an economic fallacy, thus making the nation even poorer by taking on more debt, not richer, and not in any way being a rescue package.
    Repubs got us in the mess we are in. Did you vote repub in the election?

    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.

    My apologies for not knowing what country every poster is from. Mea cupla...

    Regardless, he talks like a repub. The repubs burned through our surplus and doubled the debt in 6 years but didn't start being fiscally conscientious until they lost their majority. Suddenly they care about the debt we are laying on our progeny. It sounds like a ploy.. let's spend all the money helping out our corporate buddies and when the money isd gone we'll blame it on the dems.
