    The stimulus package is a joke.
    Since the govt is not a company with products or services it really cannot create any sustainable jobs.
    Yeah, they may have some short term projects, but once the money runs out... to pay for those empoyees.... then what's next. Once they are used to getting that money and having a job provided for them that they did not have to seek, do you really think they will go out and get a job or anyting.

    Give the money to those best to create employment opportunities that are sustainable.

    Cut our corp tax rates so we are the lowest in the world. That will show the world how serious we are about turning our economy around.

    History has shown, again and again, when corp tax rates are low, revenues to the govt go up.

    No study has every shown that when gvt spending goes up , that the revenues to the govt go up.

    Claire McCaskill’s husband received over $20 million in Stimulus cash for his real estate projects. Senator McCaskill at the time had influence over federal policy that directly affected her family’s income.

    National Legal and Policy Center reported:
    An analysis of public records by the National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC) has found more than $20 million in federal stimulus funds benefitting real estate projects financially tied to Joseph Shepard, husband of Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill.​

    Earlier this month, the Associated Press published an analysis, stating, “businesses affiliated with the husband of Senator Claire McCaskill have received almost $40 million in federal subsidies for low-income housing developments during her first five years in office…”​
