stimulus plan WITH INTEREST

i am amazed that no one seems concerned by the stimulus plan which is currently over 1 trillion dollars. 
i just got laid off and i would like more jobs obviously but i don' think this stimulus plan is the one. it seems like all of the politicians just started throwing anything and everything in the plan to make their main supporters are happy. we are supposed to be doing something to help people now that will also help in the future not building schools that aren't needed just to create jobs for the present.  this is just job- welfare. we are creating jobs that are not needed. 
why exactly is the stimulus plan over 500 pages long? do we know what we are doing?
i thought the president was more informed but at this point it feels as though his staff is telling him about the stimulus plan and he has yet to read it. this thought really scares me. we need a hands-on president who does what he says but so far he is not really following thru.... 
he promised bipartisan and he also said he would limit the lobbyists but he nominated William Lynn- this is a conflict of interest. the reason is that lobbyists go to congress and fight on the behalf of someone. if that person is then put in the white house this would affect those they were originally fighting for-and obviously they would still be loyal to those they were fighting for not the whole of america that they are now working for...

i still love the january cover for mad mag with the prez- hilarious!!

sorry for no punctuation really bad with that...
