Who says there's ANYTHING in the Porkulus package that's good for our country?

When the Democrats talk about the bill, they say we have to do something, it's needed, we have to act quickly... but they never really praise what's in the porkulus package do they? They're quick to defend parts of the bill when criticized, but that doesn't count as praise.

No one is able to say that this behemoth will help anything. It's welfare and will have more of the country locked into that defeatist path.
