All you need to know about the “stimulus” bill

The House voted down a Republican amendment, which would have cut a significant portion of the bill’s spending and greatly expanded the amount of tax cuts in the bill.

Remember, the only thing really getting “stimulated” by this bill are the government employees.  There are massive amounts of pork in this bill, and the one attempt to trim some of that pork out of it was predictably voted down by a partisan Congress.
