Not to say I agree with any of those childish Republicans for their 100% NO vote, they want the stimulus to be all tax cuts.
American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009
Tax Cuts ($275 billion)
Education Investments ($141.6 billion)
Health-care Investments ($112.1 billion)
Welfare/Unemployment ($102 billion)
Infrastructure Investments ($90 billion)
Energy Investments ($58 billion)
Federal Motor Fleet ($600 million)
Meanwhile China tosses up to $585 Billion at their infrastructure. Most likely less, but still way over our measly $90 billion.
I could care less about a tax break. Leave everything else the same, take all those tax cuts and put them into infrastructure investments, and I'll be 100% behind it.
Once again, both sides are wrong.
