>Stimulus Passes in Senate – Fucking Finally

10 Feb

>


The Times described the plan as:

“…sprawling in its reach, with tax cuts for individuals, families and businesses, assistance for jobless and low income Americans, aid to states, and huge spending on education, healthcare, energy and technology.”

Thank God.

Now that we’re off to a good start, we’ve got to get the next stimulus passed swiftly so that we can avoid the mistakes of Japan in the 90s who’s recovery wouldn’t have been called “The Lost Decade” if they had only followed up with more government aid.

Here’s to hoping that more people get on board with this so that it’s not such an uphill battle next time, although I fear it could be more difficult.

Suck it you ignorant Republican hacks. Even Charlie Crist can see what’s needed, quoted in that same piece as saying:

“This is not about partisan politics, it’s about rising above that.”
