my point was "hey, its free money, who cares where it comes from?"
Well, your point is wrong. As I stated, it is not FREE money. You and I and our children and grandchildren will be paying for this for several
lifetimes. If I gave you $400 and then took $10,000 from you and your family, would you consider the $400 FREE? Sounds like a scam to me, regardless
of whether the Democrats or Republicans pulled it.
If you bothered to see my posting history, you would know that I was very much against the first "stimulus bill" under Bush also. I worked too hard,
as did others, all my life, to have the government doll my taxes out to crooks, banksters, illegal aliens and bums who are too lazy to work. (I have
no problem with legitimate unemployment payments, because those people and their employers paid unemployment insurance premiums for those
payments.That is self-funded. )
