The vast majority of the money in the "stimulus" bill will not even be spent this year. So why pass it? Why not wait until it will be spent? Because the Dems want to take advantage of the crisis, and take advantage of people. They are no different than loan sharks who see people in a time of need and take advantage of them. So for people like KenH, why pass this bill now if the money isn't going to be spent now? Why not pass the amount of money that will be spent now, and vote on the money to be spent later when it is time to spend that?
