    • Mary this is very frightening ..

      First from over the pond - don’t you have a lot of elderly politicians – I don't mean they bring maturity but I think know how to play the game. Plus also as an outside observer it seems to run for any form of Government in your country you need big bucks to make the Congress payroll to get your show on the road – so surely this must mean you have to take money from folks who don't have the public's interest at heart?
      Also is that correct not one of those politicians fine tooth combed that bill – they just skim read it and past it and then passed the debt onto your great grand children?
      We have limits on campaign spending in the UK and also declared interests and political lobbying is very closely monitored in the UK.
      I'm overwhelmed and also frightened as I feel this will have a huge implication on the rest of the world – the US $ hangs the world currency – it pegs everyone's else's

    • Just the kind of hyperbolic propaganda I’d expect from Fox News.   President Obama didn’t get us into this situation. He’s trying hard to fix it and keep the information on what is being done free and open to all of us.  Certainly not what we have been given in the past...honesty. Give him the same chance President Bush had for 8 years and lets see what happens.

      If in 4 years this stimulus package hasn’t worked, vote him out. Until then, have the intelligence and open-mindedness to save your judgments until you see what the results are.  Don’t let Fox News tell you what to think.

    • Well said Annie!!  We can’t afford to wait for four more years.  The first 50 days has not shown me anything to feel the first bit of confidence.  Why should any of the other pork even be aloud to be included is my question?  

      That’s like roof has a leak and I need to replace it.  I have no money so I get a loan and gosh while I’m getting the loan for the leaking roof...let’s just add to it a bit and get the yard re-landscaped for the hell of it.  

      Yes...we have no time to be blaming past presidents....they are all guilty of something and they all contributed to the problem we have...ALL OF THEM....we have to deal with the today....and today...our country is in a major crisis and if those idiots in Washington don’t quit playing with fire...we are going to have an inferno...and you can say goodbye to this country!   And after our country falls...who will be next?

      Oh and let me add one more thing...please do not insult my intelligence and think that I am easily swayed by any type of media outfit.  I read..and I study daily about what is going on and I form my own opinions.  It is what it is.  Fox News might not be your news channel of choice but I not only watch Fox but other channels as well...and I also read many articles daily from different view points. And I listen...listen...listen.  

      Anyway you look at it...the way this stimulus package was presented to Congress was not right....and he did go back on his promises of letting the American people know what they were getting into...and not having any of the earmarks...and he did exactly the opposite.  

      But then again....I predicted this is how it would be.

    • I didn’t say shut up. I said stop and think.

      I also would never say that you are not intelligent.

      However, I have not seen any rants on here about the hundreds of other bills that were passed in the last 8 years filled with ridiculous earmarks. ...bills that have helped get us in the situation we are in right now.

      This situation did not happen in the last 50 days but now someone has to deal with.  Speak up if you don’t agree- that is part of being a member of a free nation.

      But if you don't like others doing the same...disagreeing with your point of view... and you seem to be really taking this different point of view very personally you are not giving others the same right... or at least not respecting that right.  

      By the way...I did NOT post a Fox Media propaganda piece.  I did not post any piece of media hype.

      Go complain to all the legislators that voted for this bill...President Obama didn't make this happen by using magic.... he had a majority of support . Maybe even support from some of the people you have voted for...

      I guess in the will all come out in the wash.  We’ll know by the end of 2009 what is in store for us.  

      Let’s hope it doesn’t take us all 8 years to find out the real truth about what this administration is going to leave for our children to fix.

    • Trudys......I have complained to my legislators.  I have written them and I have received responses and none were for it.  The people I voted for didn’t support it.’s their agenda they are saving..not the American people.  

      I posted that video because I agree with it completely!!!  People are fed up.  Why are they just now fed up?  Maybe because of the collapse of Wall Street before the election....maybe because Obama promised to work on the economy and not have any earmarks in which he did....and that the American people would know everything about it.  NOT.  And now that the majority of Americans are losing their jobs...losing their homes (something that was not happening on an epidemic level during the Bush Administration)...people who are desperate are now fed up!!!
      Not to mention all of the dishonesty and thievery that has been discovered just since Obama took office.  Now we are starting to see what these jokers in Washington have really been doing.  Did some of us know all along...all these years?  Maybe so.  But when people are pushed up against a brick wall when it comes to survival...they will do everything they can to survive.  So that answers your question as to why all the screaming and yelling about Washington, the economy, and the presidency.  A lot of things have happened just since November.  People are sick of it....and so am I.  

      But of course those who supported Obama want to make it out that we are just screaming and yelling because he is the President and not because this country is in a royal mess.  And let’s not forget this too...Obama was in congress before he got to the White House...he’s guilty too!  Oh...maybe not...because I forgot he was absent most of the time!!!  Yeah right....
