    1. congress spends, it's true, but the president leads, sets the agenda

    2. or you haven't heard of health care, cap and trade, wall street regulatory reform...

    3. his every move reveals his OWN AWARENESS that the stimulus didn't work

    4. his only answer is---more of the same

    5. he's completely lost

    6. he just makes this crap up as he goes along

    7. worst, he LOOKS clueless

    Bingo!

    BINGGGG-GO!

    No coincidence at all that this scam pops up as Congress and the Senate are discussing ways to destroy America's health care industry. The word is plain....the Congressman who votes against Messiah-Care is not going to get a piece of this new slush fund.

    good comeback

    if obama is so confident that we've turned the corner, that things are getting better, why this desperate need on his part to DO SOMETHING?

    confident leaders at this point say---stay the course

    haven't you ever heard a brave man or woman, knowing what he or she was doing, say that, stay the course?

    can you even imagine obama going THERE?

    LOL!

    The point is it is supposed to go back to the treasury.

    Obama claims more spending and then says he can cut the Bush deficit in half. What about the fact he has already tripled it. More double talk from Obama.


    They tried to spend their way out in the great depression but that did not work WW2 got us out of the depression. It did not work then and will not work now.

    No.

    Tax cuts grow the econonmy and thus grow federal and state tax revenues.

    Spending mere wastes money.

    I never said the stimulus worked.

    Yet you want tax cuts? What for?
    Because it's my money.

    Okay. But it's off-topic from my original point, which was that it made a profit, just as the poster said it was supposed to do.

    They tried to spend their way out in the great depression but that did not work WW2 got us out of the depression. It did not work then and will not work now.
    Actually, it's more complicated than that, and the world is very different now.

    The claim was that the President is "bribing Congress" with spending. So bills he vetoes is irrelevant. He can't spend a dime, or veto a dime, without Congress appropriating the money first. Saying he is "bribing Congress" is silly.
