    Only the 6% or so spent including the tax relief should be called a stimulus. The rest should be called what it actually is: long term infrastructure investment

    Stimulus are meant to be timely. What Obama pushed is anything but.
    Long term entitlement investment would be more accurate.

    Explain to me how building bridges is entitlement.

    I know there are some happy endangered frogs, some turtles, and a few artists that got stimulated.

    Tell us how much has been spent on actual infrastructure projects--roads, bridges, etc.--and how much has been spent on BS like free money in Detroit, marsh mouses, deer under passes, turtle tunnels and the study of Alskan gand parents.

    More importantly how many long term vs short term jobs have been created.

    There's going to be plenty of waste in such a large bill.

    But what is rather idiotic is claiming that the bill is entitlement/not infrastructure/not tax relief before looking that the percentages of where the money is going. Almost 51% is going towards tax relief and infrastructure.

    I do think it's funny how anti-tax people are complaining about the stimulus bill without realizing that it has a hell of alot of tax relief built in.

    When it comes to legislation, I think you ought to read the actual bill not the wiki.

    it has tax relief for the welfare class. If it isn't for everyone, then it's nothing to get excited about. I don't qualify for any of that so called tax relief.

    It's a joke. The bill had no other purpose than to reward the Leftist base. This had nothing to do with taking care of America.
