I answered the question as follows:

No, I will not bet everything I own on the claim that the stimulus will fail (why should I??). That said, I still think it will fail!

I asked you the same question to highlight how dumb your question was to begin with.

Seriously, between exploiting 13 year olds at CPAC and having the George Hamilton of Congress sprewing this that and the other thing ... what concrete alternatives have they offered up?

I haven't heard any. All they do is sully for the talking point of the day. Last week it was debt for our grandkids ... what will it be this week. Methinks it's going to be more S-bombs (as outlined in the NYT over the weekend).
I been posting here with you fro almost a year and now you are not an ignorant liberal poster who follows moveon.org. So why start now?

You need to realize that Pelosi will not let Republicans introduce any bills.

The republicans are saying more than no.

They want to cut taxes ACROSS the board like Reagan and Kennedy both did. You see we have never spent our way out of a problem what makes anyone think we will know? The Obama administration is running around with their head cut off not focusing on the financial crisis the economy is going to continue to deteriorate!

- A pro-growth tax policy. Rather than raise the top marginal income tax rate to 39.6%, it should be dropped to 25%. The lower tax brackets should be collapsed to one 10% rate on the first $100,000 for couples. And the top corporate tax rate should be lowered to 25%. This modest reform would put American companies' tax liability more in line with the prevailing rates of our competitors.
We've seen 10 years of growth in our equity markets wiped out in recent months, while 401(k)s, IRAs and college savings plans are down by an average of 40%. The administration and congressional Democrats want to raise capital gains tax rates by a third. Instead, we should eliminate the capital gains tax. It supplies about 4% of federal revenues, yet it places a substantial drag on economic growth. Individuals already pay taxes on income when they earn it. They should not be socked again when they are saving and investing for their retirement and their children's education
