    Publish the bill and wait 5 days for the public to read it:

    Call it a 5-day waiting period. Sounds like a great sanity-check for all spending bills.

    Yep and it's something Obama promised during the campaign. Makes sense.

    Well, as the new administration promised why not? What was it that President Obama promised--"more transparency" within our government.

    I still don't understand this: Only 17% of this huge bill is going to be spent this year. Why not vote on that now & get it done. -if they're in this all fired rush. Then take the time to debate & vote on the remaining 82% that is to be spent in the coming years.

    Because it is 80%, (give or take) really about spending, not stimulating. As several posters here have said, agreeing with Obama, any spending is 'stimulus.' They are wrong of course, but hey, 'He won!!!'

    I love this idea. If Obama would actually listen to this, If Reid would listen to this idea... then they would go up in approval with me. Let us see what's all in this stimulus bill and listen to our input. However I don't think that'll happen. Guess we can always dream and HOPE FOR CHANGE in government.
