    After all, aren't you one of those folks that champion the "Consensus Science"? That's just an opinion poll...
    The fact that conservatives still confuse opinion and science is always amusing.

    That was my point. Look, when you have a massive debt load you don't borrow $1 trillion to stimulate an economy that will get better regardless. It's a very tiny short term benefit for a very long term pain.

    IMO, neither the current White House budget plan nor the emerging Senate alternative provide credible fiscal consolidation from 2011 onward.

    You just agreed with him, Strawman.

    The fact you ARE confusing science with opinion is better still.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    No, people are ruthlessly self-interested and will act in a manner that benefits them, even if it is detrimental to society or others.

    Before passage of the stimulus bill, the Obama administration had predicted that unemployment would peak at 8 percent before beginning to abate this fall.

    In January, the incoming administration predicted in a white paper study that without a huge stimulus package, unemployment would reach just over 8%, and would be contained at under 8% with a stimulus package.
