That's just what I got so far. Most of this stuff doesn't belong in a "Stimulus Package". It belongs in an appropriations bill, or several bills. The money train has pulled up to the station and everybody with a pet program has jumped aboard.
This is just the start. I'm only about half way through the Bill.
God help our Grand-Children.

Well, let's hope it's the fall for O'bummer and his cronies all. Forget 2085. As it stands it's as if a business began losing $1 million from the time of Christ to today and for another 750 years beyond.

Of course! I know it's just been a couple of weeks now since the worst president in our history has left office, and this is the third consecutive election that democrats have gained support, so probably yes, everybody agrees with you and we're all scared that democrats are going to do the things they've promised to do openly for the last 20 years.

You clearly don't understand at all what "stimulus" means.
It means spending money to buy stuff and hire people, to get money moving throughout the economy.
Thus, hiring people to perform our Constitutionally-required census IS stimulus.
Since people are losing their jobs, and states are going under, they need to shore up Food Stamps. I know, you'd rather live in a country where millions of people, mostly children, are starving to death in the streets, but no HUMAN agrees with you.
Weatherization -- to pick another from your list -- IS stimulus, with an extra bang to it: it hires people and requires supplies (putting money into the economy) AND saves money and energy for those paying the utilities bills -- forever. Thus, it's both short-term, AND long-term stimulus.
It's also a great idea in the eyes of everyone who has clue enough to realize we need energy-efficiency.
Almost everything you listed involved hiring people -- that's the whole POINT. Reducing unemployment, giving money to the people being hired, to spend on their families. They also pay taxes when they have jobs. Unemployment means less in tax money going into the government.

I don't see a lot of industry, manufacturing or other commercial business jobs being created there, nothing except for GOVERNMENT Payroll Jobs.
They will spend all that money for more GOVERNMENT and be looking for more money, when it runs out.
GOVERNMENT spends money, it does not create money, except to print it.

By the time that the masses realize that this will do nothing to help our ailing economy, it will be too late. I am angry.
