    I heard this on the news today.They are repackaging it, and marketing it as infrastructure building and improvements.

    More money funneled to contributors to the Democratic party, IOW?

    What we are meant to believe is that 862 Billion was just not enough, and another 50 Billion is going to make us see real results this time.

    This is the Definition of Insanity.

    Doing the same thing over and over, expecting different results.

    Exactly. Most of that first "traunch" was never even disbursed, and the billions lent to the banks to keep them solvent was repaid. So what happened to that first $797-billion?

    American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    wheres the fucking stimulus money? why the fuck do you think you need $50b more?

    "In July 2010, the Council of Economic Advisers estimated that the stimulus had "saved or created between 2.5 and 3.6 million jobs as of the second quarter of 2010."[82] At that point, spending outlays under the stimulus totaled $257 billion and tax cuts totaled $223 billion."
