Government spending is EXACTLY what we do need right now.Spending on war materials brought us out of the Great Depression & spending on jobs & infrastructure is what will bring us out of this one. Tax cuts for the wealthy & corporations was tried & helped lead us into this mess. Time for us in the middle class to get "our cut" for a change@! Don't listen to the same tired, voices of the recent past. We voted for CHANGE.....So let's CHANGE! (give Obama a chance...If he fails you can dump him in four years & elect "Nice Legs" Palin!)
MIght be piggybacking here but when this gets past we will be at roughly $6,000 for every man, women and child in the US (Along with TARP and the 1st stimulus). Once the highway spending is gone, and the poor have taken all the free healthcare they can get thier hands on where will be? Those highway workers? Out of work? The poor that use medicaid? Still poor. Let's rush to spend nearly a trillion more on BS and say we are stimulating the economy.
Let's spend our way out of this problem (with money that's not yet printed). Funny thing is this problem comes from years of unchecked, even promoted, spending so indivuduals could live beyond thier means.
