The Dems seems to be very reluctant to continue their spending spree.

What could have changed their minds so quickly?

That's OK..Congress passed pay-go remember ?
Oh..this is "emergency spending" that is exempt from pay-go.

Paying salaries again ? Will this become a pattern here ?

Well, the next new word to learn is "Quadrillion"

There are lots of union members among the groups that Obama wants to help with this one.

Funds wanted so teachers can keep their jobs, so small business can stay afloat and even more funds for the already ridiculous war. Boy, those are some horrible reasons. Not like the 700 billion W gave to bailout the bank cronies,..that sure got the economy going

You seem to forget that congress has to approve the spending and who was in control of congress during the bailouts?

Why do the libs continue to make comparisons backwards? Do you all live your life in the past or what?

Defending this spend a million congress and this admin shows the ignorance of knowledge amount money and getting something for your money.

Obama and this congress has spent more money and put us deeper in debt that I do not think we can get out of for many years to come. And to think the stimulus money was suppose to help create jobs and it has cost us 9 million jobs.

Guess we all know who spends money on nothing.

9 million lost jobs and tons of money spent and wasted to show for it.

If that's what it is going to take to get the deficit back in line let's fire some teachers and let some businesses go under. Look at how well New Jersey is doing already, we need to stop this liberal spending. Don't even think about saying the war is too much money when we spend more each year on illegals. November will bring changes and the country can't wait any longer!

Um, we just spent $800 BILLION + and got no results. Yet we should still keep throwing money at the problem? Sounds like teacher logic.
