    Good idea... With no buddy, buddy, business and political relationships, and new straight-shooting CEOs at the helms, commerce can finally give the people products that actually work they way they are advertised.

    Most of all we will finally have proof that nobody is indispensable...

    Dem spending and Rep spending is about equal, but since spending means more jobs, and more jobs is the only way out of the recession, it really doesn't matter who spends the most.

    Spending to promote irresponsible breeding by single women hardly creates jobs other than jailers, juvenile court judges and police officers

    It's not a matter of money. The Fed Reserve will advance Congress all the money they need, and there won't be a 2010 deficit. Every year the FR makes up the difference.

    Where do they get the money, don't ask. You really don't want to know.

    You cant spend your way out of a recession, the Great Depression was prologned because of it.

    Yes you can

    You can spend your way out of a recession provided you have the savings to spend. Borrowing your way out of a recession caused by excessive borrowing to begin with however is problematic

    That's a legitimate point but since CD was talking about the government it is a given it was based on borrowing
