Makes you shudder, huh?

Quote:
Clinton recently floated the idea of issuing a $5,000 bond to each baby born in the United States to help pay for college and a first home, but it immediately inspired Republican ridicule and she quickly said she would not implement the proposal.

She defended that decision yesterday, saying she is focusing on proposals with more political support and she is not formally proposing anything she can't fund without increasing the deficit: "I have a million ideas. The country can't afford them all."

Luckily Bush only had one idea. Look where that's gotten us.

I don't car how good the idea(s) are. If you can't afford it you can't do it. Republicans have a hard time with this because they think things like tax cuts will improve the economy. the Dems sometimes think that no matter how bad our deficit or situation is having a bleeding heart and spending money on social programs is always worth it. If you are not fiscally responsible neither of the above are right IMO.

That's the stupidest thing I've heard so far.$5,000 bond to each baby born-that's like marrying a bitch that's pregnant,and the kid is not yours.

The Mexican illegal immigrants would abuse that bond.

This could be a whole nother thread, but in case you have not noticed that is completely subjective. What is not subjective is our record deficits, or pathetic2% per year gdp growth in contrast to the average developed counties 3.5, and the fact that 3 out of 4 people polled in a Gallup pole think we are heading to a recession. consumer confidence is very important. Also the dollar is a record low makes compared to the euro Canada and many other currencies. Oh yeah and i seem to remember being a problem with the housing market to.

tell me about this strong economy again. And please use something other than the stock market as a barometer.
