Economic Dicotomy?

Let’s see, the “economic growth” package $150 billion, and lookee who’s asking for half that to help fund . . . . . . – com’on, you can say it.

President George W. Bush is urging Congress to pass quickly an economic stimulus package without weighting it down with extraneous spending because fast action is needed to kick-start the sputtering U.S. economy.

“I understand the desire to add provisions from both the right and the left, the president said Friday, but I strongly believe it would be a mistake to delay or derail this bill.”

Didn’t he say just last month that the economy was just fine?
