Now they always spin the truth. They don't want it to cover all jobs, especially contractor employees working on government projects.

They really think we're ALL a bunch of morons. they might step up their efforts to those of us gainfully employed, instead of zeroing in on those who never have and never will.

I agree. This is yet another BS end-round the illegal aliens who are here taking jobs and they don't want this legislation to be applied to them bc they are now going to try to shove an Shamnesty down our throat.

Not only have been taking jobs but as it stands illegals are in line to a piece of whatever jobs and rebates are in the current stimulus plan. Being an out of work citizen of the United States means absolutely nothing to the politicians in Washington.

This shouldn't be in the Pelosi's pet stimulous bill. It was only added as a small offering. If the stimulous bill doesn't pass, neither will E-Verify. There should be no question as to if E-Verify should be used-Gawd it's a no brainer!

They have refused to use e-verify or set it back 6 months.

It's a game till the civil strife starts.

They can't figure out what else they can do to get us to kill each other.

Think about it.

Seriously, it's not hard to place in the package that no one illegally present in the US may receive these monies and that providing proof of US citizenship and/or legal status will be required. All this pussy-footing that pols do around this issue is something they really need to be called on. Quite frankly, I'm waiting for the one American who simply cannot take the pols or illegal aliens BS any longer and goes ballistic so badly that the news cannot possibly cover it up or mask it over and all hell will break loose. Keep pushing the American people to the point of break and it's not a matter of 'if' but 'when'.

They sure let the contractors in New Orleans hire illegals on the gov. money, after katrina hit. The locals weren't even offered the jobs. Contractors hauled in the big bucks and illegal labor. The gov. will do it again if not monitored.

I will be post this on other post sorry..it's to important not to be see

There's $1 billion for Amtrak, the federal railroad that hasn't turned a profit in 40 years;
$2 billion for child-care subsidies;
$50 million for that great engine of job creation, the National Endowment for the Arts;
$400 million for global-warming research
$2.4 billion for carbon-capture demonstration projects.
$650 million on top of the billions already doled out to pay for digital TV conversion coupons.
President Obama has said this bill will make "dramatic investments." Well, you be the judge.
Some $30 billion, or less than 5% of the spending in the bill, is for fixing bridges or other highway projects.$40 billion for broadband and electric grid development, airports and clean water projects that are arguably worthwhile priorities.
$20 billion for business tax cuts,
by our estimate only $90 billion out of $825 billion, or about 12 cents of every $1, is for something that can plausibly be considered a growth stimulus.
many of these projects aren't likely to help the economy immediately. As Peter Orszag, the President's new budget director, told congress..
renewable energy funding ($8 billion)
mass transit ($6 billion) that have a low or negative return on investment.
Most urban transit systems are so badly managed that their fares cover less than half of their costs. However, the people who operate these systems belong to public-employee unions that are campaign contributors to ... guess which party?
Congress wants to spend $600 million more for the federal government to buy new cars. Uncle Sam spends $3 billion a year on its fleet of 600,000 vehicles.
Congress also wants to spend $7 billion for modernizing federal buildings and facilities.
The Smithsonian is targeted to receive $150 million; we love the Smithsonian, too, is this a job creator?
$252 billion is for income-transfer payments -- that is, not investments that arguably help everyone,
cash or benefits to individuals for doing nothing at all.
There's $81 billion for Medicaid,
$36 billion for expanded unemployment benefits
$20 billion for food stamps,
$83 billion for the earned income credit for people who don't pay income tax
As for the promise of accountability, some $54 billion will go to federal programs that the Office of Management and Budget or the Government Accountability Office have already criticized as "ineffective" or unable to pass basic financial audits
These include the Economic Development Administration, the Small Business Administration, the 10 federal job training programs, and many more.
education, which would get $66 billion more. That's more than the entire Education Department spent a mere 10 years ago and is on top of the doubling under President Bush.
Some $6 billion of this will subsidize university building projects.
the House declares on page 257 that "No recipient ... shall use such funds to provide financial assistance to students to attend private elementary or secondary schools."
Horrors: Some money might go to nonunion teachers.
this spending bonanza will become part of the annual "budget baseline" that Congress uses as the new floor when calculating how much to increase spending the following year, and into the future. Itís impossible -- to believe that Congress will cut spending next year on any of these programs from their new, higher levels.. Any Blue Dog Democrat who votes for this ought to turn in his "deficit hawk" credentials.
This is supposed to be a new era of bipartisanship, but this bill was written based on the wish list of every living -- or dead -- Democratic interest group. As Speaker Nancy Pelosi put it, "We won the election. We wrote the bill." So they did. Republicans should let them take all of the credit.

You are right,
and I figure once all the baby boomers are gone. No one will be alive that will remember what a great and wonderful country America was. Really the military people are the only ones that have any honor now. Us citizens should have changed horses a long time ago.

Fact:

Whenever the Democrats want to pass a bad piece of legislation they will always tack on one or 2 items that are good just to get their bad stuff passed.

That way they are able to point to the good parts and keep everyone attention focused on them while ignoring what they are really intent upon passing.

A whole lot of money going out to the fewest number of people with the greatest percentage of kickbacks. Oh wait a minute campaign contributions are kick backs now are they?

Even these program are worthy to have but should not be in the Stimulus Plan but a separate plan for helping the American people.. Call your congressperson and tell them no to their plan
If you agree with me tell them to support these items in another plan..

$2 billion for child-care subsidies;

Some $30 billion, or less than 5% of the spending in the bill, is for fixing bridges or other highway projects
.
$40 billion for broadband and electric grid development, airports and clean water projects that are arguably worthwhile priorities.

$20 billion for business tax cuts,

Renewable energy funding ($8 billion)

Cash or benefits to individuals
There's $81 billion for Medicaid,
$36 billion for expanded unemployment benefits
$20 billion for food stamps,
$54 billion Economic Development Administration, the Small Business Administration, the 10 federal job-training programs, and many more.

Out everything I seen in my post these are the only one I would support because it does help people in the thought times we are looking at

And, let's not forget that those same illegal aliens + more of them since have maintained displacing Americans from Katrina affected areas out of jobs, housing and more.

I have been following the entire process and wonder what country I am living in. What ever happened to transparency? I think we will continue to be bull dozed by the government as they only care about reelection. When are we going to vote against all the members in the house and Senate next go round. Maybe new blood will help! Ha!
