While I agree that the stimulus package will be helpful for at least a few weeks, one significant way to avoid recession is to stop the funding of the Iraq War, since this administration still needlessly sends money overseas to meddle in the foreign affairs of the Arab world. Thus, private government contractors that are corrupt like Halliburton and Blackwater don't deserve a red cent from the American taxpayer!
As for the stimulus package, it would be worth saving the $600-$1,200 we will be receiving, as opposed to spending it in one place with shopping. It's smart to have a spare or private account for some financial cushion if Social Security ends up not giving it to us.
What would a progressive in the White House do, as opposed to unqualified, incompetent and/or Nixonesque politicians?
