By this time we are now well in to the workings of the trillion dollar & still adding spending stimulus package, others beside myself should be questioning what is going on. The majority of the funds are for future use which does not even qualify it to be a called a stimulus package (call a porker a porker and be done with it). It should be called what it is - STUPID.
WE should be learning the lessons that history has already given us about using government spending to stimulate the economy and thus create jobs. President Franklin D Roosevelt, during the Great Depression, gave it a try with his New Deal programs. They never drove unemployment down lower that 20 percent and the rate of unemployment actually climbed during the second phase. World War 2 is the stimulus that actually started America's economic resurgence.
A few short months ago our then soon to be President assured the American citizens that this was a time of hope and later his advisors were reported stating "this will go from being a crisis to a disaster, if it ( the trillion$ package) is not passed". What changed in a few short months? Will the scare tactics continue to work? Probably. We like sheep are easily led astray.
