    Yes we can crash our economy. Put your helmet on it is going to be a hard landing.

    I really don't see much in here, that I would consider helping the economy out? And I sure don't see anything in here that would go to alternative energy. Take a look & see if you can?

    No, you may have to go to the National Center for Policy Analyis for it. I can't get it up any other way than Google.

    By 2010, Social Security and the spending from bailouts to stimulus package is going to bankrupt the Federal Government. Unless of course we print up more money. Which will mean higher taxes in the form of extreme inflation. See a dollar today. Watch that dollar become a penny.

    "Unable to retrieve the document for viewing."

    Must have been done by the government or something.

    Here's another link:

    According to that, the stimulus package consists of aid to the states, school and college modernization, job training, transportation and infrastructure. Is that really all there is to it? I thought a large part of it was tax cuts and rebates.
