Default Second Stimulus on it's way!

http://www.foxbusiness.com/story/oba...-stimulus-act/

Well, maybe not. But it's scary to think that they're talking about a second stimulus when less than 10% of the money from the first one has been spent.

And less than 10% of what's been spent has been spent well.

Unfrikkinbelievable...


It hasn't worked for the first time (nor did it work for every economic model around the globe when it has been tried), but we will SAY that it is working and adhere to Keynesian Economics and throw MORE money at the problem to FORCE it to work. God Bless America.

Really, people. What's going on here?

Which of you who voted for Obama has the BALLS to step up to the plate and admit that his administration and plan is bad for this (previously) Great Country?
NO BU....BU....BUSH BULLSH*T...I'll give you that Bush wasn't The Answer, either. Fine. He, too, was a F*ck-up. Now---
When will any of you finally admit that Obama is ruining the nation?
We will be a Socialist Democracy before the end of his Term(s). Are you OK with that?

They should not only NOT have a second stimulus, they should roll-back the first one. Every project not imminent or under way gets the plugged pulled.

This is just foolishness...I was reading about how states aren't using the infrastructure money to repair bridges that NEED repaired, but only the ones that are easiest to repair? What? Huh? This was supposed to have the dual effect of creating jobs but also repair infrastructure that was in dire need of repair...

By the time the money gets to most of these projects the recession will be long over...only the BIG BILL will remain.

Have faith.....Joe is on the case.

The dumbest part of the this whole thing is that the VP was given the task of overseeing the biggest outlay of government money ever.

There should have been one person given power to oversee this thing. It might have worked if the WH wasn't so damn profanityfilterprofanityfilterprofanityfilterprofa nityfiltery about their intelligence and ability.

He's also in charge of Iraq.

Nice. Put one of the biggest dimbulbs to ever hold the office of VP in charge of the two largest tasks facing the nation.

Then again, SOMEONE needs to run these things while Obama flies all over the world placating and grovelling before foreign leaders...

The White House was handed the Golden Ticket. If this stimulus had worked, it would have paved the way for everything else he wanted to do. But the fumbled the ball.

It's really too bad.

Oh no...don't look now, but because we ONLY lost 250,000 jobs in July, these nutjobs are claiming the stimulus worked.
