we don't need no stinking stimulus . . .

The following is a list of 41 modern-day political heroes who should be applauded for looking out for the American people’s best interests. These 41 brave senators voted against S. Amdt 3983 and H. R. 5140, the so-called Recovery Rebates and Economic Stimulus for the American People Act of 2008. God bless these 41 members and help them to remain strong in their convictions.

What concerns me so much about this "stimulus" is that its real purpose is to prop up government programs instead of trying to increase productivity, etc. Maybe what America needs to do instead of trying to artificially 'stimulate' the economy into hyper-drive (similar to athletes using 'performance enhancing' drugs) is to allow ourselves to adjust to a less consumerist and high-volume economy. As the old saying goes, "Less is more."
