The stimulus makes if you work in government or the public sector because the money will stimulate government growth and government jobs. It won't stimulate growth for those who don't work in government. It'll do little to stimulate the economy as far as getting people to spend because jobs are still going away. Once the states get their money, they'll pay down debt with it but will still be left with a huge debt because the next generations are gonna be stuck with the tab anyway.

His home stimulus gives money to those who bought houses and took out mortgages they had no business taking on so those who live in smaller homes that took on mortgages they can afford now has to shell out money to pay the mortgages of those who bought the MacMansions they couldn't afford in the first place.

What about refinancing those families who do pay their mortgages on time so that they can afford to send their kids to college.

The hard working middle class who tried to live within their means are once again screwed because they can pay their bills. Of course if they lose their jobs, then that will be a problem but there will be no help for them.

At the same time, corporate greed at the top has damaged numerous corporations over the years and while they got their golden parachutes and bail out of their company the workers are left with shrinking pensions and job losses.

Plenty of blame to go around.

I will give Obama credit in that he promised change and he is delivering.
