Pass It Already!


With the number of economists screaming at the top of their lungs that the gov't NEEDS to act now, you'd think that this would be a done deal. I read today that the Republicans are trying to cut out things like Food Stamps (proven to be one of the most efficient vehicles for economic stimulus b/c the money will be spent immediately), Head Start, Public Transportation, and replace it with things like Defense construction, tax breaks (which have been shown to do very little as people save that money instead of spend it). 

And, based on the above image, even the media is trying to screw this up by not having equal coverage of both sides of the debate. So much for that "liberal" media eh?
