    I dunno, if your Government is anything like ours. They'll get to rock bottom, and still continuing digging our grave

    I voted yes.

    Because I am greedy and want to use others money rather then what I work for.

    Failure should always be rewarded.

    I voted no. I think it's too early to start beating the drum for another stimulus package before we have had a chance to determine if the most recent one has proven to be effective.

    I would tend to be against a second stimulus. At some point, you just should not keep spending, and we have passed that point.

    I don't think it's a question of the government continuing to dig.

    It's a matter of it getting so absolutely, positively bad that the government's license to dig is revoked.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    The advisor stated that this was her opinion and not the official word of the Obama Administration.

    Would you support this if the Obama Administration tried to do it? Why, or why not?
    Do we need a second stimulus? Yes.

    Do I want the Obama Administration to start pushing a second stimulus before we reform health care and before we put Sotomayor on the bench? No.

    Yea, another pork-filled monstrosity ought to do the trick. The last two have worked so splendidly.

    Let me ask you a question, when has a government stimulus plan ever been demonstrably successful at actually "stimulating" the economy?

    Re: Would You Support a Second Stimulus Package?

    Bush's stimulus didn't work. This second stimulus wasn't even designed to help the economy in the first place. It was liberal wet dream of a bill that allowed all those far leftist on the Hill to throw money toward all the things they had been trying to fund for the last few decades, but couldn't convince anyone in their right mind to support.

    Why in the hell would anyone think that a 3rd stimulus would work?

    Uhh "government spending" is pretty broad. Do you mean stimulus spending? One more stimulus, about the same size as the last one ought to do the trick. That's assuming it's as wasteful as the last one...if Congress actually limited itself to projects that actually stimulated the economy, another stimulus about HALF the size of the last one would be sufficient.
