Postscript: For what this is worth, I'm not at all pleased with this new stimulus bill. I believe it was loaded with self-centered pork designed for no other reason that to bring what I think otherwise useless spending into specific areas with an outcome that has very little to do with the creation of jobs and strengthening the economy.
The whole damned spendulus bill is bad, not just the pork. It doesn't address the root cause of the economic problem and ony throws fuel on it. The problem arose from too much spending and not enough production. The money earmarked for 'shovel ready' public projects might help unenployment and improve the infastructure but its temporary at best. What happens then? And what happens when the bill comes due? I guarantee it'll result in either higher taxes or new taxes for your children and their children.
The gov't can only create money out of thin air for so long and then that last final bubble will pop.
