A friend recently asked me if I knew where she could read the 2009 Stimulus Bill – also known as the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 – or H.R. 1.
I will warn you, reading then entire bill might take some time. According to my computer, when I select print preview, the bill is more than 450 pages long. I do not have enough ink in my printer to print out a 450 page document, nor do I have the inclination to keep a hard-copy record of this behemoth in my house.
It will be very interesting, over the course of the next several years, to observe the long-term impact of this single, mammoth bill. Personally, I would like to see our country move in a different direction, towards a smaller, much more efficient government, but that ship, at least for the time being, has sailed.
