The ever-growing stimulus package may have finally gotten too large for most Americans to stomach. A new Rasmussen poll indicates only 37% support the plan with 43% opposing and another 20% on the fence. The numbers are trending towards the negative.
This is why some Democrats wanted to get this bill passed as quickly as possible. The more the bill lingers, the more time Americans have to see how many non-essential projects are being funded under the guise of economic stimulus. If the Senate is smart, theyâ€™ll stop adding to the bill and start slicing away the pet-projects that have nothing to do with stimulating the economy.
