Stimulus Bill is a Sham.

This bill is the most irresponsible confiscation of wealth and power, from us the people, in the nation's history. This bill has nothing to do with creating jobs, it actually kills jobs. This bill has nothing to do with jump-starting the economy, it jump-starts the size of government.

The $825 billion bill is the most expensive bill in the history of the united states. It seems that through this bill, the democrats have found a way to spend money on just about every pent-up democratic proposal of the last 40 years.

This bill is a total sham. It is a fraud. It is another typical liberal big spending bill at the expense of you and i. It is completely insulting to us as americans to witness the liberals in government intentionally attempting to deceive the american people. They are more worried about their own personal gain and their chances at reelection versus the well-being of this country and its citizens.

This is supposed to be a new era of bipartisanship, but this bill was written based on the wish list of every living -- or dead -- Democratic interest group. As Speaker Nancy Pelosi put it, "We won the election. We wrote the bill." So they did. Republicans should let them take all of the credit.

i heard this yesterday on the radio,

"Trying to spend your way out of a recession is like stepping in a bucket and trying to pull your self up by the handle."

They told us the money was needed to bail out Wall Street.

That's right, giving money to rich people who say they need it is believable, while this is just pork for Democratic supporters.

OK correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this 825 billion $ bill separate from the 700 billion $ that the fat cats are using to wallpaper their offices and give their buddies huge bonuses?

Yes, this plan is for the skinny dogs to put down newspaper on the floor and give their buddies huge bones.

I'm just telling you what they told us. I don't like what the Wall Street people turned around and did with that money any more than you do. In fact, I think they should be put in jail.

Yep, I didn't agree with Bush on it and I don't agree with Obama on it... this whole thing is ridiculous.

Yeah, point a finger at the Government as a whole, not this stupid "team" fight that you guys do about dems and repubs. You are old enough to realize the government jointly works together to screw you, right? The republicans got their bill first, now it's the dems. Will it help? Who knows. Do they care? Maybe, I doubt it, they stay rich.

I'm not a fan of any of it from the get go - I know nothing about macro economics. All I really want to see is the deficit go down because that's as complicated as I can get.

I am sure that there are things in these packages that do not promote job growth. I am also just as sure that whether or not these things ever "work" the opposition will tell us that it was other factors that caused the economy to recover, because they know just as much as I do.
