Stimulus is Too Heavy on Spending, Say Growing Number of Senators - First 100 Days of Presidency - Politics FOXNews.com $900 billion. Eh, what's in a number, right? Obama says he wants bipartisanship, yet he and the Dems don't want compromise. No compromise (on both parties), no bipartisanship. At least, that's how I see it. The Dem's rebuttal against the gianormous pork in this package doesn't even address the pork. They just keep saying we need this, the economy sucks, there are tax cuts in there, jobs will be created, etc. Isn't this suppose to be a stimulus package to stimulate the economy rather than a pork package? I thought Obama said he was going to do away with pork. Maybe it's just me but do you consider $150 million honey bee insurance and $650 million to buy government employees cars as 'stimulus'? I consider it 'package'. And how come Obama hasn't gone through the budget 'line by line' like he said he was going to? Wouldn't that be a good place to start cutting pork? Seems like he likes his bacon extra fatty.
