    there is no one to blame for the mess it is going to cause but Obama and the Dems.
    Didn't think of it that way, but my guess is when the walls come tumbling down, the press will conveniently forget that the Dems passed this one.

    Don't like the bill, don't like the way it was passed.

    All the Patriot Act naysayers condemned our government for "pushing" that bill through, without reading it(and rightfully so). The exact same thing has happened here. A knee jerk reaction, quick passage, and ambiguity about how this bill will actually stimulate the economy.

    Nary a single liberal has voted in the poll or commented. Interesting...
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    Here I am!! Sorry, don't visit here often enough I like the bill. I think we should have spent more on job creation. I think the dems may have made a show of being bipartisan, with little substance behind it. I believe that all of you conservatives deserve to be represented by the government, and that your representation was probably shut out of this process.

    I am very liberal, but I don't agree that a liberal government is what this country needs, until the country is more liberal.

    I am wondering, though... The original bill was cut by 25% and more tax cuts were added. What do you think the outcome would have been if there had been more substance to the bipartisanship? No bill? That would have been a Republican victory. No Spending, all tax cuts? That would still have been much more of a Republican victory than a Democratic one.

    I find it interesting that people are complaining about not being able to read this bill yet have an opinion on it.

    Re: Who feels good about what just happened in Washington?

    It's a complete disaster. I was encouraged when Obama said he was going to change the way the last half of the original $700 billion bill was spent, Bush entirely screwed it up and just handed out money willy-nilly with no strings attached. However, this new disaster is just a pork-barrel mess, the majority of which will never help anyone or create any jobs.

    Mindlessly throwing money at problems doesn't make the problems go away.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    No one said they couldn't read it. Where do you get that from?

    There wasn't time to read it thoroughly and debate it before the vote.
