"If we really wanted to get this country going, stimulating jobs, we'd take and put the money on the ground. And this bill doesn't do it.

I can tell you right now it will take them years to get it going."
-House Republican Don Young, AK
"This is an excessive package. It's loaded with unrelated items like education provisions." -Senator Lisa Murkowski, AK
