  •  I need this "higher math" explained (0+ / 0-)

    to me, and I guess that's an intended pun.  Where does the add'l 63 cents come from?

    •  Take an extreme example. (7+ / 0-)

      Suppose that Smith gets $10, buys something from Jones for that amount; Jones keepss Brown on an extra hour for $10; Brown buys something from Green with his unexpected $10; Green puts it in the bvank.
      There's $30 spent because of a $10 stimulus.
      The money circulates in the economy, but some of it is saved, paid in taxes, or goes for imports in each step.

        then.  In fact, it makes lower taxes on the middle/lower class a no brainer too.

        •  well, guess this Congress fits that no-brainer (3+ / 0-)

          appellation, to-a-T, then; because it appears that most of them have no brains, in addition to having no heart and no courage.

          Sheesh.

          What were we thinking?

          The Congress guy we've been waiting looking for is obviously The Wizard of Oz.

          •  Aren't you in Baird's district? (0+ / 0-)

            Did he ever give his constituents a decent excuse for not voting for HIR?

            •  Yep, and I called his DC office last thursday (1+ / 0-)

              to ask why he voted "Nay" on extension of UI benefits.

              The staffer, in answer to my question?

              Told me to go read the website!

              I interrupted his 'instructions' on where to find the info to give him an earful...

              How I'd supported the Congressman in the past, voted for him since he first took this office in the late 1990s and even worked on behalf of his campaigns in the past...

              and ended with, "I only wish he were running for re-election this year - so that I could work for another candidate to vote his ass out of Congress!" ...

              whereupon I hung up on him.

              I know - the staffer is only doing his job, but you know what? I'll never be able to call and tell this directly to Baird, so the staffer is the lucky one to catch my ire.

              I'm still in dispair over Craig Pridemore's pulling out of the (WA-03)race, and just don't see how in the hell Denny Heck is going to beat Jamie Herrera (the young, female, Republican candidate who looks to be the winner of the R primary in August).

              :(
