What's Your Opinion on the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act?
It's been six months since that bill has been signed into office, and since then we've seen economic progress, but we still got a ways to go in terms of unemployment. Overall, I think that the bill has done better than I expected. What do you guys think?

1. It probably would have been much better if the Republicans
hadn't been allowed to water it down. Things are looking up though, and it's just a matter of time before the people get put back to work.

2. Talk to me in a year
Most of the money has not moved out the door.

The extra $15 per 2 weeks is helpful. Seriously. That's a night out at a restaurant.

3. I would not have been able to keep my health insurance without it.
It allowed me 9 months of a 65% discount on my COBRA while on unemployment. Plus, the extra $50 biweekly helped.
