    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?

    I see Dingy Harry got his rail link from L.A. to Las Vegas.

    I predict at least 6 years of environmental impact studies. That's where that money will go. Nevadans won't get the work, or the money. The EPA will.

    It's enough to make you laugh.

    Most of the job building in the stimulus pkg is government jobs for the expansion of government: Supposedly, they reason, their salaries will produce consumerism on their part to stimulate the economy: In actually it will increase the services promised which increases the demands for services: In actually it will increase the debt and produce an unsustainable demand which will eventually crash. In actually, the debt will have to be satisfied by increased taxes, but since the employment balance is moving from the private to the public sector.... that means the government employees will be subsidizing their own jobs ..... with their revenue...... and their votes.

    There is no economy without products being produced and exchanged for value. If the stimulus does not help the private sector to carryon business and obtain short term credit as needed to support inventory demands and fluctuations, then it does nothing long term for the economy. It may benefit the few who get employed in the increases of government infrastructure ...... but it does nothing for the private sector or their wealth.
