Taking his cue from El Rushbo, America's Favorite Washed-Up Action Hero offers this thoughtful critique of the stimulus bill:
"There they go again! The House and Senate have buried us in yet another bailout-stimulus heaping pile of fiscal dung -- a $789 billion loan that has been tacked onto our children's (and children's children's) already staggering $10-plus trillion deficit. Are you just going to sit there and take another one up the tailpipe?"
Good question! Are you just gonna take it, America?!
"Public support for an $800 billion economic stimulus package has increased to 59% in a USA Today/Gallup poll conducted Tuesday night, up from 52% in Gallup polling a week ago, as well as in late January."
Without a doubt, this country loves tailpipe action. One quibble, though: is it really possible to "take it" while sitting?
Anyway, Chuck seems to agree with Joe the Plumber that the answer to the global financial crisis is to just cut a few expenses.
"If our country is to survive, we must elect only those who show proof of fiscal discipline, refuse under all circumstances to increase our national deficit, and commit to pass and live under a constitutional amendment for a balanced budget."
So by Chuck's standard, Ronald Reagan and both Bushes TOTALLY sucked and Clinton was the best president evah!
