Rooting for failure

If the stimulus doesn't work, which it might not because it isn't fucking big enough, I suggest you all prepare yourselves for perhaps the biggest onslaught of "I told you so" in recent memory.
The vote was 246 to 183, reflecting the Democrats’ considerable majority in the House and the Republicans’ deep dissatisfaction with the measure, whose estimated price tag has fluctuated daily and was finally placed at $787 billion on Friday. Not a single Republican voted in favor of the bill.
Not that cutting taxes on the virtually unregulated companies that essentially cause this mess wasn't a good idea as well.
