Also, for your pondering pleasure.....
I am thinking that much of what is included in this "stimulus" bill really belongs
within general appropriations. But this way, Democrats can continue painting their skewed version of Republicans. You know the Republicans: those cold-hearted, bitter, elitist, capitalist pigs that loathe the poor, don't care if little children lack healthcare, and hope to destroy the environment. This way Democrats can yell things like: Get over it, we won, stop hindering progress, sore losers...which, by the way, I actually heard a lot of as I watched this play out on CSPAN.
Hey Nancy, Harry, Barbara (Boxer)...did I get that description correct? Of course I did. Since Republicans are not afraid to stand firm and reject this pork-laden bill, they will continue to be tagged the bad guys. There will be insults and insinuations that Republicans really don't care. Our President can visit the suffering town in Indiana, step up to his bully pulpit, demand that Republicans stop playing games, demand they take action before the responsibility for this nation's undoing falls at their doorstep. Never mind that the actions don't belong in this bill. It is not a matter of, at this point anyway, whether or not these things are needed. It is a matter of them belonging somewhere else. How, EXACTLY, is it that infrastructure projects not scheduled to begin for 4-5 years STIMULATE our economy right now? Again, this is not to say those projects are unnecessary, not to say they wouldn't create jobs. I am just more interested in what happens now...IF we are, in fact, looking for stimulus.
