Snarlin' Arlen explains why he is supporting the stimulus

Why I Support the Stimulus
By Arlen Specter

I am supporting the economic stimulus package for one simple reason: The country cannot afford not to take action.

The unemployment figures announced Friday, the latest earnings reports and the continuing crisis in banking make it clear that failure to act will leave the United States facing a far deeper crisis in three or six months. By then the cost of action will be much greater -- or it may be too late.

He's supporting it because the country cannot afford not to take action? What the @#$%! kind of reasoning is that! I had a boss tell me once, either do it right or don't do anything. This stimulus bill is crap. Congress needs to go back to the drawing board.
