Another stimulus package?

While flipping through the different news channels, they were reporting that President Obama is ready for ANOTHER stimulus package to be getting worked on. I think he means when Pelosi and her crew come home from their Italy hiatus. Are you ready for another stimulus package to be written and passed? I know I am not. To me this is scarey to think that we are just going to keep throwing good money after bad over and over again and never benefit from it. Geez, this one was just passed yesterday and not even the ink is dry yet.

  • No, Ladies, this is a totally different stimulus then the one that President Obama signed into law yesterday. This will be a whole new one.

  • Yeah I heard hes already talking about a second one. Like my mom says democrats smell blood (money) in the water and they go after it. I bet this time he gives out checks since so many are asking WHERES MY CHECK???????? Gotta keep the peeps reliant on the govt to pay their bills otherwise they might wake up and realize they can just get out of poverty or try to.

  • When the government owns 47% of the GDP, you can officially call yourselves a socialist government. European style in fact, perhaps that Italy trip was really a research tool for doing it the "right" way. Pelosi wouldn't want to mess up the socializing of this great country would she? Anyway, we are now at 40%, with the next "stimulus package" ( if you want to call it that because THAT is what you stupid Democratic Americans are swallowing from Zero) AND the combo of the housing rescue plan, we will be at or above 47%. That Obama, he sure is a quick study. Every Obama voter will have exactly what they voted for in less than 6 months whether they thought they wanted it or not.

  • Well I am still reeling from having to pay this year, because I recieved a stimulus check last year, and so did my 86 year old mother. In my neck of the woods, jobs are vanishing right and left. The focus should be on keeping people WORKING....not just handing out money, that they will be taxed on later. The country will go broke if it keeps giving out money, and not seeing that people have jobs, to support themselves.
