Economic stimulus Package Spicket

The Bush stimulus package is turning into the spicket that won't turn off. This measure truly shows that we have crossed the line of principle that has kept us from socialism for so long. I really think that the majority of people would rather receive a hand-out taken from the pockets of working people. The same thinking that has caused millions of Americans to plunge themselves into consumer debt is taking hold in the public sector as well. "I want it and I want it now and I am perfectly happy taking it from you to have it." It used to be that you just had to vote for a Democrat to make that a reality. Now it doesn't matter what party. The Republicans will ask for less spending, but it is spending never the less. We need to be slapped in the face. Working people include the rich. The rich are the ones that fund the vast majority of government spending.
The Senate wants to add spending for a whole assotment of people that don't add anything to the economy. The Republican response is typical. They do want to spend money on those groups, just not as much. The rate at which this nation bleeds doesn't matter. It is still bleeding and we have no coagulant in sight.
