Pared-down stimulus deal reached in Senate


www.msnbc.msn.com

WASHINGTON - With job losses soaring nationwide, Senate Democrats reached agreement with key Republicans Friday night on an economic stimulus measure at the heart of President Barack Obama's plan for reviving the economy.

"The American people want us to work together. They don't want to see us dividing along partisan lines on the most serious crisis confronting our country," said Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, one of two GOP senators who signaled support for the bill on the Senate floor.

the media talking like it's a good thing

Don't get too giddy though. Soon we'll be saying "THEY'RE BACK AGAIN", when this one fails like the first one did.
Politicians just can't resist feeling that they have to "Do Something", even when that something makes things worse.
I've lived most of my life, but I am incensed that these crooks are doing this to my children and my grand childrens' future. These politicians are CRIMINAL, in every respect.

They just said on the news that if we did nothing (according to independent and governmeny economists), we would begin to climb out of this recession in 6 months. What we ARE doing with these stimuli packages are much worse. Government is just gonna get bigger and bigger.

Communism here we come?

Well people wanted obama in for "change" thought I don't think those that voted for him counted on him destroying us from the inside out, but that's exactly what's happening. What I don't understand is why isn't the press doing their job, being the peoples eyes an ears and picking this bloated package apart an tell we the American people exactly what's in this monster and who's getting the biggest payout.

You know what is amazing? When the traitorous Bailout Bill #1 was being crafted and voted on, literally hundreds of members posted on the threads. Now we have this Bailout # 2 Bill, and the thread can't even get past the first page. I guess most people have given up fighting it. Well, I won't. I'm still calling my senators and congressman and telling them what I think.
Wake up America. This may be your last chance to salvage anything.

I'm afraid that many members have become "Johnny Sixpack"- you know, be resigned to getting shafted, sit down in the easy chair, pop a six pack, and watch Wrestling or American Idol .
