Where were these people when Bush's good ol' bailout flew through Congress? Where were these people when Bush gave out *tax cuts* to the rich in a time of war. Wait, not one war, but TWO wars! The republicans are the reason for this utter mess and they've put politics and their endless cronyism ahead of peoples livelihoods. I'm not saying that the stimulus package is perfect; it's not. I'm also not suggesting that it will be a success, because it's honestly a 50/50 bet. The point here is that the republican party continues to do everything imaginable against the good of 98% of the American people. Their interests lie solely in power, greed and victory. Bush's absurd $700 billion "bailout" has been an absolute joke, yet there's literally no blame being tossed around. And now the republicans are treating the stimulus package, which is designed for the PEOPLE and not failed and crooked corporations, like a red-headed stepchild.
Since I began following politics, I've never quite understood how republicans ever win. Hopefully the American public, as it did just over two months ago, continues to feel the same way.
