Those Republicans and Blue Dog Democrats currently vowing to vote against the stimulus bill are once again trotting forth fresh evidence of their criminal Stupidity.

WHILE the Federal government can now borrow at Rates ranging from ZERO to ONE PERCENT -said Congressional Morons refuse to Borrow & spend...WHEN...they have been doing exactly that for the past 8 years at interest rates many times higher!

Given the unprecedented OPPORTUNITY to rebuild our infrastructure (criminally starved for decades by same morons)
...@ not more than 1% stupid do you have to be to pass up such a golden opportunity?

While we're at it we need to bump up the total from $850 Billion to a Whole $Trillion or a $Trillion and a half.

Double the Tax Break/welfare (whatever you want to call it) for that 95% of consumers - from $500 individual and $1,000 family - to $1,000 individual and $2,000 family.

Those politicos currently blabbling

"no tax cuts, no money for the 95% because the Bush stimulus just didn't work."
--- never cite any SOURCE for said "info" & conveniently forget that $300 and $600 in increased consumer spending power was far more than WIPED OUT by the GAS PRICE increases.
