    Democrats work on multibillion-dollar jobs package -- latimes.com

    Well spending packages haven't worked before, but maybe if we're really lucky it will this time. The problem is that the laws of economics tell us that this can't work, and will only lead to more problems. The government cannot create jobs. In trying to do so the government simply destroys real jobs, and creates more malinvestment.

    Free the free market!

    Didn't they already pass a $800+ billion "jobs" package, back last spring?

    Doing the same thing over and over again, expecting a better result.....

    Apparently it wasn't big enough. We need to waste more money, obviously.

    KK, your opinion is only that and remains irrelevant.

    Everyone who posts on an internet message board only has an irrelevant opinion, including yourself.

    Is this an admission that the stimulus package failed, then?

    I mean, that was supposed to create or save millions of jobs, so why would we need THIS bill?

    Yup. They already did this.

    The first porkulus bill was just that, pork, very little job creation. Also, anything the Govt provides as a job in the private sector is a temp fix. The job will be going away when the project is over then back to unemployment line. These idiots need to catch a clue and read a little history to see what works to create jobs and Govt ain't it folks.

    You gotta hand it to the Libs. The first plan didn't work so what's the answer? Well you do it again!.Can anybody say stimulus plan #2. Still don't see anyone in the State run media being critical of the President on anything.
