    $1 billion for the 2010 Census
    $150 million for the Office of the Federal Detention Trustee

    $1.4 billion for water projects for Indian tribes
    $10 million to inspect canals in urban areas
    $2.1 billion on energy efficiency in government buildings
    $600 million to buy high fuel economy vehicles for the federal government

    The real problem with this bill is that there are indeed some worthwhile items that will stimulate the economy. For example, the $250 billion for energy efficiency in government buildings. I'm not saying the amount is right. I'm saying that the projects could be labor intensive and could yield a savings in the long run.

    The Bill has been greatly modified from what they tried to cram down our throats last week. Pelosi and a Congressman from Wisconsin have been exposed for loading the bill with pork and for also trying to payback Labor Unions for their support in the last election.

    Public support is now only at 34% according to the latest Gallup for this stupid bill. Even if the Republicans get somewhat of a compromise, WE DON'T need a Stimulus Bill/package. We don't need ANY MONEY being spent, we need tax cuts for tax payers and businesses!
    The Libertarian Party believes that all persons are entitled to keep the fruits of their labor. A call for the repeal of the income tax, abolishment of the Internal Revenue Service and all federal programs and services not required under the U.S. Constitution. We support the passage of a "Balanced Budget Amendment" to the U.S. Constitution, provided that the budget is balanced exclusively by cutting expenditures, and not by raising taxes. LP.org

    The extremely worrisome facet of the overall package is what their intentions are for the illegal immigrants. It's incredibly scary. Get Lou Dobbs report. It's worth looking up. It WILL make you call your senator.

    I have tried finding this Lou Dobbs report that you quote. Can you be more specific?

    And we thought ethanol was the biggest scam to be perpetrated on the American people. Ok…where are all the Obama loving liberals we had on here before the election?

    I want an apology or at least I am going to tell you I TOLD YOU SO!



    Hope this is the beginning of the end for liberals in this country regards.

    "Hope this is the beginning of the end for liberals in this country regards."

    Patrick, they will never really go away since all of our universities and
    primary education systems are loaded with the pointy-headed sandal
    wearing "FRUITLOOPS". Reagan beat them back, but Bush the elder
    let them come back in 1991 with his tax increase. Liberals are similar
    to Johnson Grass, you have got to keep treating them with "RoundUp"
    on a regular basis to keep them in check. Our problem is that we let
    up on them when we have them by the balls. "Take no Prisoners" is a
    motto I wish my party would subscribe to.


    Bitter Clinger Regards
