70% Fail the Test of Common Sense

Nearly 7 in 10 people support the compromise between our naked emperor and the guns & religion set across the aisle.

This should be a long posting, but really, I can't get anywhere near 500 words out of this. Could someone anyone explain to me why it’s a good idea to cut taxes and increase spending when deficits are already at an all time high. The gov't spent almost a trillion dollars in the last year on the stimulus and the effect was almost nothing. Certainly nothing tangible came from it. So now, with a similar outlay, close to $900 billion, we are seeing the same unquantifiable promises of jobs and economic growth. In truth, all this bill could do is hasten failure of Social Security and our economy.

The only explanation for this compromise between Congress and our naked emperor is that it’s a ploy to get them reelected. Another borrow from tomorrow plan that will sink us all next week. No intelligent person could think this is a good idea. No intelligent person could possibly vote to reelect any incumbent who votes for this travishamockery.

So, could someone please explain to me, why this is a good idea, because Paul Krugman's song and dance isn't holding water for me.
