Quote of the day, Part II

"There is plenty to complain about for everyone, and perhaps that's the sign of a good compromise. Regardless of party, we all cast our votes with one hand and crossed our fingers with the other."
- U.S. Rep. Emanuel Carver, a Missouri Democrat

Your government at work, ladies and gentlemen! It's only $800 billion - just chuck it against the wall and see if it sticks! And, come on, you know there's no time to actually read the thing. Even if we promised there would be.

Because, you know, CHANGE!

i am scared. is anyone else out there scared of what is going on? i am sure that the dem's re-loaded this bill with all types of (more) power-grabbing, non-stimulative provisions this past week.

it'll be interesting to see how obama (doesn't) provide "transparency" by allowing the general public to have 5 full days to view any major bill, as he promised in his campaign. what # of lies have we tallied up so far?

Yeah, change, in hundreds of dollars a year that is stolen('invested') from my income to pay ('fund the LESS FORTUNATE') for some deadbeat that realized it's easier to just not bother to work at all and just suck the govt teat. Sunovabeach I love Socialism. The harder you work and the more you make the more they take to give to some idiot parasite. I really can't fathom why so many young professionals are dems. Don't they realize they are screwing themselves? Or is it just more cool and hip to be anti 'the man'? I'd rather my money go to provide my children a quality education and upbringing than to pay for some crack whore's smokes. I guess that's just (the racist in) me... or at least that's what I'd be called for opposing our President.................

Interesting. I can't help but wonder where all this hand-wringing was when Bush and the Republicans were doubling the national debt over the past eight years to no good purpose that anyone can currently ascertain.

If you didn't see the hand-wringing, you weren't paying attention. True fiscal conservatives have been bemoaning Bush's economic policies for years - and, in fact, they were why I cast my first vote for a non-Republican presidential candidate.

In just a few weeks, though, Obama has laid the groundwork for more lasting economic damage than Bush's policies could have accomplished in 20 terms.

Doug said...

Seriously? Bush jacked up the national debt by nearly five trillion dollars. But Obama passes one ~$800-billion stimulus bill and you're all but predicting the collapse of the republic.

It's really interesting how Republicans only remember they're "fiscal conservatives" when there's a Democrat in the White House.

And Democrats only worry about the money when it's a Rep in office. Man I hate politics. It's just a cycle of trash whoever is on the other side. I hate all of them for the most part...
