The Stimulus Bill: Let's see how transparent

38 posts in this topic

What's the big deal here? $335 Million is a pittance of a $825 Billion bill. And can any of you honestly say that a drop in the bucket isn't worth being dedicated to AIDS prevention and education?

This is an economic stimulus bill, not a social bill ... the AIDS prevention/education funds should NOT be included in this. Yeah, you know what that say ... $335 million here and $335 million there and pretty soon we're talking about real money!

Your personal share of this bill, not the rest of the government's budget mind you, is $2715.

Multiply that by the number of people in your family to get a household burden.

That's a big bucket.

Okay, let's spend that money on new tanks, then.

How is pouring money into clinics and hospitals (which typically don't operate for free and pay their employees) not an economic stimulus?

Well of course that number varies widely between tax brackets. But given that figure, that's about a dollar and some change for this part of the bill.

It's not creating jobs ... it's funding programs. There's a difference.

How are you able yo determine that providing financial assistance yo these places won't enable them to hire more employees for what might already be an understaffed office?

It seems like the right is bitching just for the sake of bitching

Tell me they're going to spend $335 million to hire people .... don't think so.

Also, read the bill ... it doesn't talk about hiring people.
