they call it a "stimulus package" ..
how about renaming it to a more realistic: "putting you into debt and choosing how to spend your money for you" package
or how about the "if you have been responsible and are debt free, now we fuck you by making you pay as if you took the risk yourself" package
i don't understand what you mean by spending 'your money for you' kinda thing.
according to the article he's tryingto fund his new plan with the 200m bank bailout money that they're expecting to be paid back (lol) sooner than expected..
wasn't that $787billion dollar stimulus plan they passed last winter supposed to do what this new stimulus plan is proposing to do? Which would be more funding for roads/bridges/major construction projects which would get more people in the states working?
but holy crap lots of money lol..
it's not money but useless green toiler paper now.
Same thing was happening to Germany before the war. Huge inflation and jobless rates. So... a good orator (hmmm) starts building shit. People get more money and go "hmmm that guy is awesome. lets follow him".
Now he just needs to find the one enemy to rile everyone up.

if obama can get the unemployment rate to 5%, with 15million more jobs contributing 20,000$ each in income tax, that is 30,000,000,000 dollars in added revenue each year, not to mention the added economic growth which will add more tax revenue on every level.
the employers make more, paying more tax. the grocery store makes more, paying more tax. the cloths store makes more, paying more tax. the list goes on. governments are starving for cash because of the dwindling tax take-in.
if it creates the jobs, gets the economy rolling and allows the infrastructure of the country to get increased and modernized, then the country just might get out of this with a competitive edge that can lead to continued growth.
on a micro scale, look at the highway one project. a long overdue project that was fasttracked politically to spur the economy. how much do you think that highway is bottlenecking economic growth? and costing the current economy because of lost efficiency?
