  • I think it is good and bad. I don't think all that money is needed and I don't think all the extra little things needed to be put in the package. I do think using the money to build the infrastructure of the country is good. It opens up jobs and puts cash back into the economy. And we need all the help we can get here in Ohio with funding for schools.

  • Hey I do not agree with everything Rush says but that porkulus word made me giggle a bit.

    How much is going towards infrastructure and job creation?

    What jobs do you think will be created?

    When do you think we will see these jobs?

  • LOL fiveofakind. As with most proposals there are parts that are wonderful and others...not so wonderful.

  • Jobs created: road construction, carpentry, landscapers, not for profit, education etc.

    When: Well since the money doesn't get completely funded until 2010, I am going to go with 2010.

    Over half.

    Contraceptive thing got struck from the bill today, so that is out.

  • I think there are parts that could benefit the economy. But I think there is too much spending on programs that don't help American Industry and not enough tax cuts/incentives/etc.

  • The only thing that this bill is going to do is greatly increase our national debt. AGAIN. Where do you think this money is coming from? The last stimulus was borrowed from China.
