Mr. Scheer captures America's angst perfectly. I, myself, have not been enamored by Mr. Obama.
What did catch my attention was that the second $350 billion was quickly increased to a $ 1,500 billion price tag before the hearings and subsequently has been raised yet again to... $3,000 billion. All of this took place within three days! Unfortunately, experts predict it will end up around $5,000 billion before all is said and done.
For "the people" we get $800 billion, but 40 percent is tax cuts that won't really stimulate. No real aid for cities and states, the folks who are on the ground doing the grunt work. The stimulus is packaged for a just-enough-to-fail and not-enough-to-succeed scenario... They are already talking about Stimulus II. Good luck with that.
