GOP blocks Senate stimulus package
The Senate has failed to break a Republican filibuster on an economic stimulus bill that would give $44 billion in rebate checks to the elderly, disabled veterans, the poor and unemployed. The tally was 58-41, two shy of ending debate.. ... The Associated Press and New York Times have more on the political wrangling.

One of the no votes was Senator Reid to enable the bill to be voted again. The truth is that had McCain voted YES this package would have passed the senate. Only the Dems tried to help the disabled vets, the unemployed and the very poor. The GOP ignored them!

More gene spam.


Rebates are NOT the Answer!

If we give that money to individuals who spend it at Wal-Mart, it will NOT create U.S. Jobs and will not help our economic problems! It will just add more to the national debt!

That's because this bill was meant to stimulate the economy not help the poor. The money was put in the hands of those they believed would best use it to stimulate the economy. Paying bills and putting the money away for a raining day will not stimulate the economy and is what most likely will happen if the money was given to the wrong people.

Besides, money will go to more people than you said they would, maybe you should read my article and begin to retract your articles you fool.
