The debate on the stimulus continues (watch it here).
Warning: don’t watch if you’re in the middle of lunch. The GOP’s increasingly hysterical objections to the bill are getting tough to stomach.
Coburn described it as "the largest generational theft bill we’ve ever had in the history of our country."
Yes, Coburn is a crazy person, but that’s pretty much the GOP party line on the stimulus bill.
There’s something deeply ridiculous about this debate. We just lost another 600,000 jobs. We’re talking about spending a fraction of what we’ll spend in Iraq — or even on the Pentagon over the past 4 years — to prevent further economic collapse, perhaps even a sustained depression.
Object to the bill, fine. But please STFU about how we’re hurting our grandchildren by investing in our own country.
