  1. A USA TODAY/Gallup Poll found 57% of adults say the stimulus package is having no impact on the economy or making it worse. Even more —60% — doubt that the stimulus plan will help the economy in the years ahead, and only 18% say it has done anything to help improve their personal situation.

  2. Well we better get a few trillion more dollars of spending out there then so they can better see it working! -Obama
  3. Illum


    Good idea - Bernake
  4. Of course its not working,only about 60 billion of it has been released

    Much of it wont be released until re election time.Some of the results will be artificial and temporary,but flooding the economy with 500-600 billion will have an effect,at the perfect time for Obama
  5. How can the 'stimulus' work is all it does is give joe six pack more cash to buy more Chinese stuff?

    Yeah, the stimulus works alright, to help the Chinese economy!
