People keep talking about how Obama is spending so much money...
...so much money in the new package. What people fail to address, is the fact that prior to Obama, Bush was spending just as much money, on a war with acountry we didn't need to go to war with. Now their is no choice, another person has to come in and take the reigns and finish what Bush started, and fix his mistakes. And some of that, Iraq and Afganistan for example, will take somemore money. Picture, if you will, that Bush is still president. What do you think he'd do with Iraq and Afganistan? Not spend money? What would McCain do if he was president? Not spend money on Iraq and Afganistan?
Yes, it's going to take somemore money, but the difference is its money to make things better, not money to make things worse. Bush spent money to make things worse when he started a second war before he was done with the first war he started. If you've got a problem with Obama and his spending pakage, then where were you when the banks got bailed out? Bush was president then. What do you suppose Bush would do about the economy if he was president now? What do you think McCain would do?
Remember, before you complain about all the money that's being now, remeber all the money that the previous president spent.
