    THAT was a shining example of how bi-partisanship works.

    Government spending does not equal fiscal stimulus.
    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.

    Can you explain the difference? The money has to go into the pockets of someone who will in turn spend it thus stimulating the economy.

    Inflation. Robbing Peter to give the perception of having the money to pay Paul.

    There's government spending, and then there's actual economic stimulation.

    Taxing a business owner so you can pay a person $15/hr to dig a ditch and fill it back up is the former

    Allowing a business owner to keep enough of his money to expand his business, allowing for the creation of a $15/hr job within that business is the latter.

    Sure...
    Take money from those who earned it to give it to those who don't. And then hope that they go out and buy lots of big screen tv's and american cars.

    I hardly see that as a good idea.

    The recession is projected to end in 2009, yet only 107 billion of the money is scheduled to be spent this year.

    Why do we need to spend the remaining 680 billion?? Oh yeah, it's so the Dems can create a permanent patronage system.

    Some of the money is scheduled to be spent in the 2016 Olympics.
