Must read IMHO

This is an excellent article by David Sirota titled The Stimulus Swindle.
Leading figures of both parties seem eager to help limit the debate over "stimulus" and make the final package a corporate goodie bag.

In the article he tackles the question of why an immediate "stimulus" package is required when the nation has been bleeding for many months.

His conclusion: The people asking for help now are not you and I (read serfs), its the movers and shakers who finance politicians.

Money talks, bullshit (read serfs) walks. Yeah I know. That grammar didn't come out quite right. But what the hell. I think it makes my point.

Come to think of it, many serfs will be walking or taking the bus when they can't make their car payments.
