These people are so out of touch with reality it is frightening.

"This is the first time Republicans and the American people have seen any specifics on the proposal congressional Democrats intend to pass, and what we’re seeing is disappointing. The plan released this morning by congressional Democrats was developed with no Republican input and appears to be grounded in the flawed notion that we can simply borrow and spend our way back to prosperity. It calls for more than half a trillion dollars in questionable new government spending on programs and projects, while providing less tax relief for middle-class families and small businesses than President-elect Obama has proposed."


An initial review of the “stimulus” by Boehner’s office found these spending proposals:

$600 million for new cars for the federal government

$1 billion “to minimize undercounting of minority groups” in the 2010 census

$400 million for NASA for global warming

$400 million for “National Treasures”

$6 billion for colleges/universities, many of which have massive billion dollar endowments

$166 billion in direct aid to states, many of which have failed to budget wisely

$650 million more for digital television conversation coupons

You left out one more stimulus: inflation. You can't throw borrowed money at every problem. As it has been said, if you are in a hole, throw away the shovel and quit digging a deeper hole. Won't be long until anyone who now pays taxes will pay more. I was hoping I could use my money to shoot more trap and pay my bills. That's only my opinion. Darrell
