I can see merit in a few. But lots of other are rather vague. Looks like lots and lots of pork. I got today off, and have been watching the bitchfest on T.V. and it aint looking pretty. When I first read the bill, I did as you, wanted to puke. What is scary, this will pass due to lack of resistance. America, you are getting what you voted for.

If we do right, and the key word is "IF" It should not be an issue at all. As long as we get to say who sees them

"stimulus" can happen many differnent ways for example. They above mention healthcare "improvments" section. It's going to take a pile of work to come up with a centeralized system if that is what they want, again I have no idea. The size and scope of that system is huge.

Again this is the "cliff note" version of the bill, so until I read the entire bill I am not going to get allworked up.

True...the final version may end up looking nothing like the above....still it's a lotta dough to spend without any guarantees.
