A New Day for Government’s Role in the Economy

No – NOT Morning in America-

“WASHINGTON — The Senate’s vote on — and the likely approval of — an $838 billion economic-stimulus plan Tuesday will signal a decisive new expansion of the government’s role in the economy.

The package will include tens of billions of dollars to help states pay for health-care, education and highways. It’ll provide tax breaks for new car and home buyers. It will help to computerize health records and invest heavily in 21st-century renewable energy technology.

“Just think about Rosie the Riveter manufacturing solar panels and wind turbines,” said Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., describing the bill’s long-term impact.”
