I won't even get into how dangerous it is to just go printing off money with nothing to back it up except the "good name" of the US government. Just read about Germany's hyperinflation in 1923, where money was more valuable as scrap paper than it's face value.
Of course, Nancy Pelosi did the best job of summing up liberal fearmongering to gain support for this "stimulus" package. She stated that, for every moment we delayed passing the stimulus, "500 million Americans lose their jobs." That just really puts it all into perspective. The situation is unbelievably dire! Especially since there are only 305 million Americans alive today.
I am with you, I am just saying before we totally rake him over the coals lets see what actually happens here in near future. No doubt the economy is a bad spot right now, but of course they are making it seem worse than it is to get this bill passed.
Although, it is funny how he says he did not intend to come right into office and spend all this money but it's almost exactly what John McCain said he was gonna do, almost down to the dollar amount.
Pelosi is the most dangerous of the group in my opinion, that woman really rubs me the wrong way. Even just looking at her upsets me.
