Well Obama is spot on  with this: listening to Limbaugh will just get Washington involved in  hyperpartisan spin and not get anything done.  It will just go to raising Limbaugh's ratings.  Limbaugh, like Coulter is just an entertainer ... worth listening to if you want a laugh.  So while republicans are getting giddy about the trillion figure, i expect democrats will be rolling up their sleeves and trying to get something done.

Yep, democrats & republicans with their pants down will be throwing taxpayer money at the problem without any regard to whether it will create even one job, your hyperpartisan n-wording of the word hyperpartisan notwithstanding. Basically the hype & urgency is being created (i.e the conn) so that the demos get a slush fund so big that nobody will ever be able to track what is happening with it; especially those pols who are being paid back for BHO's election.

I wish someone would publish the foreign family planning budgets that are in the proposal.  How much of it goes to education, AIDS assistance, and other birth control methods, as opposed to performing abortions?  Until the actual records are found i'm going to assume very little indeed - perhaps under 2%.  Iow, should my gestimate hold, then 98% goes to reducing abortions and 2% to performing them.

What does any of that have to do with economic stimulus? particularly aid to groups doing foreign abortions?

Well we will see ... check back later on recovery.gov.  I plan to go out and get some local pictures.

One big question is how funding abortion overseas is going to be in any stretch of the imagination an economic stimulus?  Is aborting babies here & overseas going to cut the cost of families.One million babies aborted per year is not enough? Look at the aborted taxpayers who are being passed on to future generations. This is an example of partisan political payoff!

Great idea here:

It’s an absolute travesty that there is no funding for stimulus contests in the stimulus bill.

Think of all the creativity (and jobbbsss!!! and contest infrastructure!!!) that could be spawned if a mere $1 billion was allocated to writing short essays on the stimulus. With 50% allocated to contest administration, 40% to prizes, and 10% to the man who caught this horrible oversight, I’m certain this piece of the stimulus would’ve been spent far more effectively than anything else in the bill.

Of course, this is overshadowed by the even greater oversight that there is no line item in the bill directing funds to me to disperse through the Human Fund.

...I wonder if we can get some real participative government going on here with the new openness climate (?).  There does seem to be the opposite going on here like a rush to do something without much public review. See also

And that’s going to be their M.O. to get Congress to act.”

Yep the foreign family planning stuff probably does not belong in the stimulus bill. 
Maybe in some cases.....
