I told him to cut 50 last time. But nooo, he had to cut 25 and babble about inflation. Now he looks like the biggest idiot to hit Washington since the Carter administration. He should just be allowed to quietly resign to spare himself more public humiliation. That said, I frankly don't see what is so wrong with the economy that in the space of a week or so, suddenly we have to piss away 150 billion in stimulus giveaways. Like Ron Paul said regarding our foreign policy, we can't afford it. It's one thing to cut taxes in a manner that stimulates economic growth and therefore is self-financing. Just giving away money is the worst method and in fact was what got Bernanke the Helicopter nickname. If the government is determined to throw away money, they would be better off to use it to buy up some subprime paper.
