    Better to let 500,000 people a month lose their jobs.

    Chris, admit it, you are as dumb as everyone says. Go ahead, say, "I'm a troll, I've not a clue to what they hell is going on in the US, much less the world."

    so its better to just do nothing at all and let the economy really go in the shitter then be bold and try something.....MANY think the stimulus should have been larger than what Obama signed

    It certainly would be better to do nothing, since the alternative (this spending package) is to make the situation worse. The market needs to correct itself, and further government interventions only prolong the agony of the recession.

    The CBO predicted this would shrink the GDP, how again is that stimulus? How is that going to help the unemployed, if the economy shrinks?

    CBO said it will shrink GDP TEN YEARS FROM NOW.

    God, you are so full of shit.

    The purpose of the bill is to help people thrown out of work while we reregulate the financial system, so this doesn't happen again.

    But you don't really care. You are just a Republican drone.

    Anne, admit it, you don't care if 500,000 Americans are losing their jobs every month, as long as you hold on to yours.

    Tell me Chrissypants how 500,000+ unemployed are going to benefit from the GDP shrinking over the next 10 years?

    It isn't going to shrink now, that's the point. But you know all this, you are just shoveling your usual bullshit.
