Mr. Obama is pushing all the buttons and doing his best to get Congress to get a stimulus bill to his desk as soon as possible.  He is using fear tactics to sell the need to rush the bill.   He is saying that if we don’t get this stimulus bill passed now, we will  “sink deeper into a crisis that, at some point, we may not be able to reverse.”

Current polling says that the majority of the american people think the Bill as it now stands will not cure our ills and will waste Billions on pork and pet projects that could not stand on their own merits.

If this is worth doing, it is worth doing right.  IMO doing it wrong now will not only fail to “solve” the problem.  It will exacerbate it.

I think the real reason to rush it through Congress is to pass a lot of pork that could not withstand the light of day. Given time for the public to learn about what is in this bill, I think it would not even pass in a Democrat controlled Congress.
