I just read "Senate panel passes $157 billion stimulus plan" and I have to say it lacking slightly. Like for instance where is the debate of recession being good vs. bad. There is no such thing as a good recession, unless you have read history books on economics and see that our economy is cyclical. Are we to believe you didn't ask any hard questions to any politician? I think no one makes a case for common sense notions such as economic recessions and economic booms can occur in patterns. Are reporters doing any investigating at their job?
The pre-war fumble by reporters has made this Global American Citizen skeptical whenever a bill sounds to good to be true.
