A good change for Vail Valley, nation

I can’t help thinking, when Arizona Sen. John McCain calls passage of the Senate version of the stimulus bill “an act of generational theft,” he is ignoring the fact that the real perpetrators of that crime spent the last eight years committing it.

The Republican Party needs to cry mea culpa, not “over my dead body.” This is a big problem, and it requires a big solution. I understand their unwillingness to commit the federal government to such a large spending bill.

But the time for them to have shown fiscal restraint was prior to the 2006 mid-term elections, when the citizens finally took back the country from the circus that was running it up to that time.
