What's not to love. Food stamps, free housing and free health care. Paid for by the big bad greedy rich!!! Liberals want to keep the poor poor and unmotivated so they continue to vote Democrat.

Why are the poor recieving stimulus money? They're happy were there at. How about the people who have worked hard for their possesions like houses and cars, 401ks that have dimminished in all of this. Kudos to the first BLACK president! poor will always be poor

You have to be either really wealthy, or really poor. You should shoot for the latter, cause then you won't have to pay taxes and you'll get stuff for free, like spending money, food stamps, housing. Quit your job, buy some cigs and lay around the house waiting for the mail.

unfortunately I too, fall into the middle class. Not that there is anything wrong with that. I know I wouldn't want to be a landlord, but in my defense, I've been where I'm at for 11 years and have always paid my rent on time. Clean house, the whole nine yards. Apparently there are some landlords who don't appreciate the "ideal" tenant. It does seem that the people who need it most don't get the help they need.

If only the ones that propose this type of spending knew where it realy went they wouldnt be so quick to put it into stalled affortable housing projects they were stalled for a reason. I work for the public school system (middle school) those kids already know that they will recieve a gov. check soon or are already reciving disability or socisl security.. They recieve these checks for a number of reasons that just dont make sence to me some are labeled ADD or ADHD, ODD, some are so over weight that they are concidered handicaped .WTF?? you say, well its true and if our gov. continues to payout this kind of subicidy we'll be broker than broke and primed to be taken over by some third world country thats hungryier than we are and we'll be too fat and lazy to do anything about it .Oh and this didnt start with Dems. It started with being afraid to say no because we were afariad of being called a raciest or some kind of uncaring monster. well the monster is out of the bag and she should be rearing her ugly head at the lazy baggage this country has hanging on her neck. There I said it.

Sounds like our stimulus money is going into developers pockets.

And by developers, of course, I mean the mob. Couldn't get the casinos, so here's a little something for the boys from Pat.
