The Rescue Plan - Why didn't we pass it sooner?

A few weeks ago, I posted my feelings on the rescue plan (see here). I said it reminded me of a pyramid scheme as we were going to keep borrowing to get out of the borrowing mess.

However, Representative Alan Grayson of Florida has explained it and now I'm wondering why we didn't pass it sooner. Rep Grayson said the bill would "shelters the homeless, and heals the sick. It helps us to look forward to a day where we beat our swords into plowshares."

MAN!! If it does all that, it's got to be good. I would have liked to have seen a little raising of the dead, but I guess I can settle for this.

(see the story here)

More to come later....

You mean THE ONE can't raise the dead with a stroke of his pen?

I'm somewhat dubious about the plan as well, but the money spent on improving infrastructure seems like a no-brainer to me.

All I can see is Rob Schneider looking at His Obamaness and saying, "You can DO it!"

Brooke - yes, I was laughing too, until I got started crying.

Thomas, I'm not sure yet if I agree about the infrastructure spending. I intend to look at various sections of the package over the next few weeks. Hopefully, you'll keep coming back.

Steve, "yes we can!" (sorry, couldn't resist).
