They seem to be implementing more of the trickle on theory of economics.

Probably not. I wonder if there might be jobs in NYC and D.C. building stocks and pillories.
Better buy something with that tax break, or we’ve pissed away a big chunk of 789 billion.

Doesn’t look like it. Then again we all could be wrong.

can’t say for sure… but after what we have done for the past 8 years, and change might be good.

The Republicans said that the plan would be a disaster… and they sure do know how to create disasters.

The only thing that can eventually fix the economy is a return to decency and confidence in the economic market.. When regulations exist to allow capitalism to work and keep excessive greed in check, we all win.

All private business will suffer until people get over their childlike envy of unequal levels of success. A govt interested in fairness is a catchphrase for a govt interested in holding people and their productivity back.

Not one bit, because it won’t put the necessary funds where they really need to go. In the hands of businesses and citizens. John Kerry made the statement that when you give money to businesses and the people they are free to do whatever they want with it. Save it, pay down bills, etc., but not direct it where it needs to go. But the government can direct where it goes and is smarter than the people and businesses. This from a man who is wealthy because he married twice for money. We also know how well the government spends money. Anyone want a $200 hammer or a $500 toilet seat?

Hey, can we have a Lumberjocks Lobby Group? We could lobby congress for a woodworkers bailout! Really, if we’re to just throw money somewhere, we should at least send it to businesses for captial investment. This way we’ll be more competive in the world market when the econony picks up.

What they need to do is give the money to the heads of major banks and corporations. They are the only ones that know how to have a really good time with it.
