The question is whether we trust our government to put in place an economic program that truly provides a plan for growth and the beginning of a recovery or will just result in a short term benefit for those special interests that have controlled and paralyzed the government in the past.

Contrary to the warning label on Viagra, if this stimulus lasts less than four hours then you should call the doctor and most certainly your elected officials demanding their retirement.
