Stimulate Me Again

As the unemployment rate climbs into double digits, and the Vice President says that the Obama Administration may have "misread" the economic situation, there are a few economists calling for a second stimulous package. The first one, $800 billion, did not quite do the trick.

How worried should I be?

If a second stimulous is needed, the Republicans are going to have a huge party, they will slam the Administration as hard as they possibly can, they will close their greedy fists tightly around the tax payer dollars, while Americans, those citizens who pay the taxes, struggle to survive. The Republicans will talk and talk, while Americans wonder where they are going to get the money for groceries, for mortgage payments, for shoes for the kids.

I am a woman in my late forties, and I am all for more stimulous. In fact, if the books I have read lately have any truth to them, I can be stimulated many more times. I say, pile on the stimulous, guys, we can spend it as fast as you can print it.
