Have you read the two version of this stimulus package? mmmmmm...bacon. Try the 674 pages of the House version. Then, I dare you, try reading the 778 page Senate Version. Once you are done reading, get together with all your friends, and make one version that satisfies everyone. Add a vacation, some photo ops and get it all done in a week. Good luck. This super urgent, do it or we all die, mentality is the same propaganda crap used to ram the Patriot Act down our throats.
I wonder what's different now? Up until November, a common whine I heard from BO supporters was how far in debt Bush put this country. I don't get it. If it was bad for Bush to deficit spend us into a recession, how can MORE deficit spending possibly pull us out of recession? Does drinking more vodka make you sober?
I encourage everyone to write their Senators and Representatives and ask them to slow down. Read the bills. Listen to the opposition. Carefully and critically evaluate every small part of this unprecedented humongous spending package. Keep in mind: one person's stimulation is often another person's rape.
