Now all we need is for americans to take it further and remove the idiots in washington (starting with Obama, Emanuel and Clinton) for more honest individuals.
Money needs to flow like blood in your circulatory system. What happens when you get a clot? Certainly not a pleasant feeling. What if that clot reaches your heart? Your brain? Simple.... you die. If the heart is the whole economy and the brain is the government, killing the brain kills the heart. Killing the heart will kill the brain. People refusing to spend money creates millions of little clots that will effects the whole body, not just one small part. If the people are cowards and to afraid to spend money, then fine. The government will do what it can to force money to move. Through spending and taxes, money will have to move whether it wants to or not.(think blood thinners). Is this the right course of action to take? Probably not, but desperate times and mass fear and ignorance doesn't exactly fit into an "ideal situation" either.

i swear, if i hear one more poor person bitching about the bailout plan i'm going to lose my mind. Poor people bitching about socialism is one giant oxy moron. The next person that compares socialism to communism needs to visit a socialist country and ask the people living there about how their lives compare to those in represive communist nations.
If you are a conservative in this country chances are you're either an uneducated moron or have ideals that take advantage of the people that are.

Funny thing is that this stimulus packages are being given out because you had a President sitting for 8 years ruining your country with fighting wars and giving his friends good deals, and still people are demonstrating against the new President, that has nothing to do with the reason why he is putting out these stimulus packages.
Your country is tanking at the moment and instead of behaving like spoiled kids and throw eggs on the Politicians who was just elected i think you all should head down to where Bush resides and put up the demonstrations there.
For many years the President and his Administration have not only warned of the systemic consequences of financial turmoil at a housing government-sponsored enterprise (GSE) but also put forward thoughtful plans to reduce the risk that either Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac would encounter such difficulties. President Bush publicly called for GSE reform 17 times in 2008 alone before Congress acted. Unfortunately, these warnings went unheeded, as the President’s repeated attempts to reform the supervision of these entities were thwarted by the legislative maneuvering of those who emphatically denied there were problems.
