Nine days after inauguration, Obama achieves a major Congressional victory, House passage of an economic stimulus bill by a vote of 244-188. It wasn't even close.
What do you hope Senate does with the Bill?
Were you happy with the original Bill?
If you were able to write the Bill, what ideas would you have to stimulate the economy in your town?

You go gemgem! I second that! I would also add to your proposed package to give money to ICE to enforce a no tolerance policy on hiring illegals that are stealing our jobs, forcing builders and remodelers to hire American workers. The bill should never be passed with all it lobbyist special interest payoffs, let me start with taking the millions of dollars proposed to ACORN! Paying off the lobbyist and special interest groups that helped NObama into office is transparency for real!

Op, what ideas would you have to stimulate the economy in your town?
I recently attended a Chamber of Commerece meeting where we talked about our town. We have a population of 35,000. We are a small town that will most likely NOT see stimulus money. Rather we are left to have mixed emotions and questioning HOPE that the larger city closest to us receives money? And then hopefully their CHANGE effects our town? We don't need infrustructure. We need industry in the vacant GE, Delphi, and Tire Plants. We need small businesses building up in our vacant downtown. We need people coming back to live in our town for the industry, paying taxes that will then rebuild the roads. We need corporate tax cuts, payroll tax cuts, etc
