WaPost Editorial on the Stimulus

Here's a nicely done editorial by the WaPost on the emerging stimulus package. There isn't much in it for Conservatives to like, but it is clear the Obama folks are trying to throw us a bone with the tax cuts, credits, and business tax/depreciation provisions. Remember--they really don't need to...with their margins, they can pretty much ram what they want down our throats.

I think the Post does a good job of raising the BS flag on some particularly egregious examples of spending in this bill. Putting more money in the pockets of taxpayers immediately and projects that could begin within 90 days should be about as far as this thing should go. I fear however that such appetite suppressants are unavailable on the left side of the aisle.
