  •  Take the time to skim this bill... (0+ / 0-)

    ...to see for yourself.  It's a piece of crap!

    •  That is what my (0+ / 0-)

      husband keeps saying.  He is a moderate socialist type.  He loves Obama.  

      I was horrified to hear his assessment.

      •  lay out what you want (1+ / 0-)

        it's a useful exercise but may or may not have anything to do with what would pass.

        •  For those of us (0+ / 0-)

          who are on the precipice and are desperate for help, what is the best tactic? I want to support Obama.  I am pretty horrified at the behavior of the Democratic congress, and as usual, feel the GOP members of congress are my literal enemy.

          What do we do?

          •  pass the bill (1+ / 0-)

            and then apply for correction if needed. Not passing the bill won't help anyone.

            •  Just because Obama is popular and says I have to? (0+ / 0-)

              Tell us DemFromCT, have you bothered even skimming this thing?  

              Obama was railroaded by the Bulls, he should NOT be rewarded for it.  I want change, this is not change.  Send a message to DC.  No more tax cheats, no more partisan stiumulus packages.

              •  Daschle never made to confirmation (0+ / 0-)

                and neither did several others (your message is received in DC, and I agree with it).

                You are going to lose on the stimulus/recovery, so move on and outline what you DO want instead of bitching that 0.01% of it wasn't perfect.

                •  My message was NOT heard... (0+ / 0-)

                  ...given the fact that several DID reach confirmation.  

                  Move on??  You have to be kidding.  I'm not happy that Obama's popularity will result in a misguided piece of legislation.

                  As for the .01%...see my note above.  That was an EXAMPLE.  A backyard one.  If you skimmed the bill, you'd find your own.  Go ahead, try.  Don't agree with something just because someone told to you, even if it is your duly elected President.

                  Why do people have such a hard time with statistics on dailykos?

                  •  the real number is 1% (1+ / 0-)

                    and a big yawn when compared to unemployment numbers and the task ahead, including shoring up the safety net.
