I am attaching the Stimulus Bill links, the Congress put it up late Thurs night. Vote at 9 am Fri.

help with going through it FAST! So we know what is in the bill. Huffington Post in fact has an email address to send any "wrong" or added things to the bill to them. I am glad they are trying to hold the Congress accountable to what may be in the bill.

So there link is here, about the bill: including their email address, just for the bill.

First link to Huffington Post :

Since we published the first version of the stimulus back on January 24, Huffington Post readers have spent countless hours combing through its evolving versions to figure out precisely what the taxpayers are being asked to fund. We're asking you to do it one more time. And this time, you have to do it fast. The House is expected to convene at 9:00 Friday to begin debating the bill and vote on it sometime in the afternoon. Then it's on to the Senate.

What we're looking for: anything new that has been injected into this bill. Determining what's new isn't easy, but comparing this version to the Senate and House versions is one way. A better way, with the limited amount of time left, may be to send us anything you find interesting. We've been living and breathing this bill and might be able to tell quickly if it's something new or not.

Now links to the bill: - Text Conference Report - Division A -
Text of the Conference Report - Division B -
Joint Explanatory Statement - Division A -
Joint Explanatory Statement - Division B

There are hundreds of pages with each of those links, but

Tell us about anything that stands out by emailing, and we'll publish the best finds.

Here's Speaker Nancy Pelosi's summary of the bill.

Can you help? Can you read and understand anything, that has been added or should not be in the bill?

Specifically, one section of the economic stimulus bill designates nearly a billion dollars for new vaccinations of children. This was discovered by Elisha Celeste, a NaturalNews reader. As stated in the bill:

$954,000,000 shall be used as an additional amount to carry out the immunization program authorized by section 317(a), (j), and (k)(1) of the Public Health Service Act (”section 317 immunization program”)

The issue of whether vaccinations are actually helpful or harmful is hotly debated, of course. The pro-vaccine camp believes that the human immune system is a technological failure and that chemical intervention is the only way to protect children. The anti-vaccine camp believes that exposure to non-fatal infections actually strengthens the immune system, creating stronger protections against future infections. Thus, vaccines actually interfere with normal, healthy immune function while injecting children with dangerous chemicals and substances derived from sick, diseased animals.

One part of "new" stimulus bill - sickening

that does nto create jobs - looks like all kinds of "sneaky" projects might be in the bill!

Thread here - to discuss the language about not allowing any money to go to facilities in which prayer is found.

Washington Times

300 million of our tax money to save some mice for Nancy Pelosi.

:shk: And this is what Obama called 'catastrophic' if it didn't go through?

Side note about this non-stimulating stimulus -

Politifact Obama Truth-o-meter

Politifact says that Obama is breaking a major campaign promise. He said that he'd allow the public 5 days to review any bills that he signs. The public isn't getting that with the stimulus bill. Obama has promises to sign it as soon as it is ready.

This is NOT an emergency bill. Most of the money wont' be going out for years. Obama claims it's an emergency measure and that's why we won't get our 5 days to view it. I say ... BULL.

Well ... it seems that the gambling junkies will be getting a new Vegas to LA rail. :shk: Yep .. it sure would be 'catastrophic' if that didn't get built.

AP Article

In late-stage talks, Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., pressed for $8 billion to construct high-speed rail lines, quadrupling the amount in the bill that passed the Senate on Tuesday.

Reid's office issued a statement noting that a proposed Los Angeles-to-Las Vegas rail might get a big chunk of the money.

Also - Anyone know about last minute additions of birth control language. At one point those pushing this non-stimulating stimulus said that paying for birth control would help save our economy.

It was in, then out, then in, then out ....
