Embracing the Stimulus

Through out the morning I have been paying attention to the news, and hearing what is being said about the stimulus package. I am very happy to hear Republicans embracing the stimulus. In my eyes this is a major step in getting our economy back on track. Though it is easy to point the finger at a particular party for the mess that we are in today, and I have also pointed the finger as well. We must work together to pull ourselves out of the economic mess that was eight years in the making.

There are Governors that are debating whether or not they will accept the stimulus money, this is not a wise course of action. This is what you call cutting off your nose to spite your face. In the end by not accepting the stimulus they could in fact be sealing the fate of the state of which they govern.

This stimulus is not going to fix everything, but it is a big step forward. I for one am quite happy with the plans that President Obama has put forth. People need to remember this is not an overnight process, things will get worse before they get better. We’ve been through this before, long before our time, and we bounced back. I believe that recessions like this have positive effects, they bring a sense of reality, and bring about change.
