Looks like even the Gov ran Associated press is doubting the Dems stimulus.

  • Let's try this:


    Massive government growth and spending continues to cost us more and more tax dollars.  Corporate taxes increase in an attempt to make up for all of the government growth and spending. This prevents corporations from making financial quotas and HIRING people and/or increasing production/distribution, which in turn, keeps unemployment growing (and the job, housing and stock markets all stagnating).


    If government would STOP SPENDING, and give Corporations and Small Businesses TAX BREAKS so they don't move overseas, and can HIRE PEOPLE and INCREASE their production/distribution (providing Cap and Trade is not implemented), then people, who now have jobs and a health plan can buy or stay in their homes (providing they purchased the right amount of home they could AFFORD and haven't maxed out their credit cards--which is THEIR FAULT....

  • LOL! Do you think the moms on this site are going to understand that article? If they did, they wouldn't need to be woken up.  Way to many big technical words in there, lol.

  • NEW YORK (AP) - The Federal Reserve announced a $1.2 trillion plan three months ago designed to push down mortgage rates and breathe life into the housing market.

    But this and other big government spending programs are turning out to have the opposite effect.

    More like doing that patented sigh and head shake that everyone's father has to make a child realize how badly they've screwed up. The one that makes your heart sink because you know your parents are disappointed. Only in this case, it's a REALLY loud sigh.

  • You "ladies" crack me up with this sem controlled press thing......The MSM sucked George's peeney starting on 9/11 and only ended AFTER hurrican Katrina. They held stories about corruptions and gave NO voice to ANY opposition to the war for fear of being labeled un-patriotic by the Bush Admin. Check out GOA, They were the ones who found out the Bush Admin was planting FAKE news and FAKE reporters at WH press briefings and the one guy they used was a MALE ESCORT! ....and that barely recieved a mention.....

    So now that they have STOPPED licking the republican butt hole they are totslly in for the dems....PLEASE
