Missouri Can Do Without Second National Stimulus
Some U.S. senators have proposed a second stimulus plan, arguing that there has not been enough spending to jumpstart the economy. To her credit, though, Sen. Claire McCaskill suggested Missouri is not on board for the second round of spending:
“If we are trying to move anything on health care and we’re trying to move anything on climate change, then putting another stimulus on top of that is a backbreaker,” she told POLITICO. “It is a political backbreaker — for people from states like mine anyway.”
We don’t see eye to eye on government action regarding health care and climate change, but her “backbreaker” comment is right on target. Hopefully, Missouri will continue to resist further stimulus and massive national debt.
