Where Can I Get Whatever It Is That Our Treasury Secretary Is Smoking?

Treasury Secretary Paulson, meeting with the G-7 Finance Ministers in Washington, tried to reassure them that the U.S. economic slump was only temporary.

He said he told his counterparts that checks from the stimulus package would go out in May and June and that they would add 500,000 to 600,000 jobs to the economy. He said that the federal government was helping more than a million homeowners keep their homes.

Anybody who thinks that those paltry checks are going to create over half a million jobs is smoking something fer sure!!! That money will be used to pay down credit card debt or catch up on the mortgage. That our Treasury Secretary would blabber in this way to other world economic leaders is sad indeed!
