    the reason for the need is the dead end spending done by bush for 8 years...military spending does not generate the same return as spending in the private sector. only about 25% of the monies have been released...it will be interesting to see if there are any new jobs?

    Spending money to keep from going bankrupt is like saying we need to have sexual intercourse so I can remain a virgin!

    There is not going to be any money spent in the private sector from this no-stimulus, stimulus bill, it's just not there. I suggest you read the 1566 pages of this pork filled bill and show all of us where this is going to stimulate private industry.

    Remember, we have to pass this stimulus bill now before anyone had a chance to read it because if we don't unemployment will increase above 8%. Guess what, it's at 9 1/2% now and going higher.

    I will create or SAVE 4 million jobs with this plan, WHERE ARE THEY?? I don't even see a serious reduction in the number of new lay-offs.

    Joe Biden- totally out of touch, " I see teachers, police, firemen working, well hell yes you do, they are state employees." Stupid, where are the private jobs???? They aren't there.

    Your complaints that the stimulus is done wrong have merit, to be sure.

    Your complaint that stimulating the economy was a bad idea is on the whole, I think, basically incorrect.

    Yet another clueless politician spending hard-earned taxpayer money. Now I know why these politicians exempt themselves from ordinary citizens. It's just amazing how these people expect us to pay for our own slavery and more amazing that they have so many willing accomplices.

    SAME Congress approved all the spending.

    At what point does Obama and Congress take responsibility, instead of blaming Booooosh?
