The feds have been busy signing free trade agreements with every third world country, and they expect rebates to fix the economy? Hello? McFly? Most of the money will go overseas as thats where most of the stuff is made.

sadly most do not understand that, it's all about the free market to them, regardless the price to the nation's economy.

we are ten trillion in debt, and wasting 10 billion a month on Iraq. How will the debt ever be paid off if all the politicians want to cut taxes?

Sounds good now, but it spells our disaster

The left wing liberal leaders in the US ruled Congress Pelosi and Reid are getting good feedback and appreciation bonuses from sheiks and tyrants of Saudi Arabia, Qatar Russia and Venezuela that are getting windfall of the American people $600 checks that flow to their bank accounts.
Thank you Pelosi and Reid for enriching the worst enemies of America and for keeping our US oil stocks deep in the US potential oil fields in offshore waters.
The evil radical Islamic Iranian Ahmadinajad is coming to US to a new visit in New York to personally express his gratitude to Pelosi and Reid that help financing the Iranian Islamic terrorist dirty bombs and nukes that will be used against US troops.
Pelosi and Reid are now seeking more checks from US government to enhance the American people financing of the Islamic terrorists when they buy gasoline in US gas stations as they keep tying the hands of the American people behind heir backs and preventing US oil production that could keep trillions of dollars annually in US states treasuries for the welfare of the American people.
With Barack, Pelosi and Reid ruling US Congress serving the interests of US enemies, the self-hating radical liberal Dems proved time and again that they will do everything to harm US economy and US national security in their support of radical Islamic regimes and socialistic regimes against US troops.

We haven't heard whether the first round of stimulus checks did anything?

I agree with waiting, however for a different reason. We may need that second stimulus check
to pay for home heating this winter.

The first check probably went to food and gas.

How are the Republicans to blame?

And if the Democrats are going to "clean it up":

1) Why haven't they implemented the "secret plan" they said they had in the last election?

2) Why do they, and all their minions, continue to oppose creating more supply?

3) Why are the Democrats doing their best to pass legislation making it MUCH MORE difficult to create more supply? EXAMPLE: Ken Salazar is pushing legislation making it almost impossiblr to mine for oil shale?

4) Why aren't the Democrats pushing for NEW technology?

5) Vehicles that run on everything from compressed air (mfg Tata), Hydrogen (mfg BMW, Chrysler and more) and even WATER (at least 2 different companies in Japan are in the process of bringing such cars to mass market.) Why aren't environmentalists, Democrats and other so-called "Liberals" talking about ANY of that???

No Democrats, are only interested in prolongng the problem until after the next elections...in hope the fools will vote them in - THEN they will pretend to be our "saviors". And the masses will buy right into it.

OK, dajokerman, balls in your court.

And so it goes, marching down the road of creeping socialism, into the corral of serfdom.

Evidently you have no idea how tax cuts work. Tax less, more money in your pocket. Debt is mostly in entitlements, yeah, welfare, social security, Taxes that are paid by working people. As for wasting 10 billion a month, you haven't had your house hit by radical muslims? What's that worth huh??
