Yeah, Ms.Pelosi has called for a massive 150 Billion dollar economic "stimulus" package! I wonder what would have happened if the 80+ billion from the first "stimulus" and the 850 billion "bailout" and this proposed 150 billion "stimulus" had been put together and given to the taxpayers and let the chips fall where they may with Wall Street? Here is the story: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20081008/ap_on_go_co/meltdown_pelosi This has been the downfall of congress and ultimately the American taxpayer; Congress's pat answer to anything and everything is to throw money at it and it will go away!

You left out the best part Rodney. "Pelosi said a stimulus package would create jobs by investing in public works, increasing food stamps benefits and extending unemployment insurance for the long-term jobless." Can one of the liberals, and I think even liberals hate Pelosi, tell me how increasing food stamps and unemployment will create jobs? Giving people more handouts for doing nothing will just reward and encourage their laziness and complacency.

Yeah, that will really work... not. The democrats are a bunch of socialists who think Americans are idiots who will blindly fall for their lies. They may have a point as a lot of them seem to be on myLot. The best way to stimulate the economy is stop interfering in the free market and cut taxes. While they are at it they can cut spending too.

Are you kidding me? Congress giving money to the taxpayers? They should do that and it will never happen! I like the way you think and I feel the exact same but it won't happen with the system that we have in place now.
