    I know that Obama needs to be realistic and that he needs at least some GOP support to get anything through the Senate. What I find disapointing in this bill is the failure to live up to the promises, and the failure to provide a plan that will do a lot of good.

    It's especially disappointing because a more ambitious plan might get even more support. What GOP Senator will turn up his nose at massive infrastructure spending in his state? I believe it was Colbert who suggested that we call on the GOP Senators to refuse to accept any spending for their states -- to produce a bill that will boost all the other states. Dirty pool? Perhaps it might seem that way, but it would really drive home the message that we need to do big things here and criticizing it for being too big is moronic.
