No Shit

Did TV news miss point in covering stimulus plan?
[...]
"...the Center for Economic and Policy Research said the media had "badly failed" to inform the public about what the stimulus plan means. The group said news organizations also didn't keep things in perspective, focusing on criticisms of the bill that were a very small part of the pricetag."
[...]
Gee. Ya think?

Since the details or text of the plan wasn't even released to the general public until it had been voted in, who outside of the assholes voting on it would have had a chance to analyze it before it was actually shoved up our collective asses?

It was touted as milk and honey, but you never heard an opposing view on how everyone was going to be paying their neighbor's mortgage and free health care. I think too many people don't realize that "the government" is US. The government doesn't have some big stash of unused cash. It doesn't just magically appear when people want or need it. Everyone pays for it.

Unless of course, you're one of the welfare moms with ten kids working the system getting "freebies" from Uncle Sam.

I never got anything from the government but bullshit from the IRS.
