so what part of this plan do you not agree with?  so if it gets completely paid for by more cuts, closing tax loop holes etc.....  What would be the problem with the bill as a whole?  Are you in favor of deregulating business to zero?  if so why?  Do you not think rules and regulations should be in place?

All 150 pages of what Obama is wanting passed, not just the generic highlights.

I agree with some of the points, given there is strict oversight of how the money is spent, and to make sure that the money is spent on what is intended for.

Some things are ridiculous.

Like.. I am all for renovating and updating underprivileged schools, but I am not ok with private schools getting any of the money at all.  Private schools should not get tax stimulus to make a profit.

pg 21 sedction 227

I am not sure I am for high speed rail ways before we fix our current roads and bridges.  High speed rail should be separate from fixing roads and bridges. Same with the Airports.  We are asking for tax money to be wasted.  One project at a time.. or at least the funding.

I am not for the wireless Internet initiative at all.  For one it will interfere with other signals.  Number two it doesn't belong in this bill.  This is going to build a network for one company to be a monopoly.  Let the cable and phone companies do this their profits since it will benefit them.  This is another example of corporate welfare.

That starts on page 65.


That's just a little. This plan covers so much it could be broken down into 10 to 15 plans, so people know what's in it, what it means, and can tweak it some.  Its like to first stimulus.  Lots of good ideas, but too big of a plan.  Money will get squandered, projects will be started but will run out of money before getting them finished. 

I would like to see one or two things at time, lets do them, do them right, and go on to the next one.

 Has anyone read the bill (not the overview) besides tooptimistic and myself?  Or would some just like to bitch about Obama?

I have read parts of this, but never in entirety.
