    By the time everything is said and done, this stimulus package could be bigger than the bailout bill.

    Story here.

    So let's see, nearly $2 trillion in bailouts, excluding some sort of bankruptcy package for the Big 3, and now close to another trillion.

    At this rate, why do we need to work for our money? Just let congress pay us to be unemployed.

    I can't figure out if you're for the stimulus or against it. You argue that it will be good for the economy, but here you sound angry about it.

    At any rate, the government will once again take the steps necessary to prolong and worsen this crisis.

    I was for the stimulus package after 9/11.

    I was for the stimulus package earlier this year to help us avoid a recession.

    Now that we're in a recession, I'm not for another stimulus package. I really do worry that people are going to depend on the government too much.

    Because I do not support social conservatism at all which is even more of a threat to society than people depending upon the government.

    Are you kidding? After two time Bush voters allowed our Chimp in Chief to spend 700 billion on Iraq; and after we spent 700 billion to buy the bad dept of some greedy Wall Street moguls, this is exactly the kind of thing we should be spending money on. Infrastructure, roads, schools, green technology. Those are tangible things that benefit the Nation and put americans to work. Its not just buying some worthless wall street debt that exists on paper, or funding a futile and stupid war on the other side of the globe. Infrastructure, education, and technology pay for themselves in the long run.
