"Stimulus" Bill to be Voted on Today: Full of Billions of Dollars in Liberal Pork

Wednesday, January 28, 2009

The House is expected to vote TODAY (Wednesday) on the Obama Stimulus bill, which is getting worse and worse -- and bigger and bigger -- by the hour. Here's just a sampling of what is in the bill:

$2.4 billion carbon capture products...

$4.19 billion for ACORN and other bogus "community organizing" groups...

$650 million digital tv conversion...

$79 billion to bail out the state education system...

Hundreds of millions for family planning...

$400 million global warming research...

$50 million for the National Endowment for the Arts...

$200 million to refurbish the National Mall...

And the bill is not even a stimulus! Just 1% of the so-called stimulus is for tax cuts for small businesses. And according to the Congressional Budget Office, two thirds of the stimulus will not even be spent for nearly two years! Rep. Mike Pence calls the bill a "dusty old wish list of liberal spending priorities."

Call or write your members of Congress now and ask them to stop this insane spending spree that will fall upon the backs of our children and grand-children to pay off later!

Our reps' phones and in-boxes are being inundated with pleas from the people not to pass this pork laden "stimulus" package. Will they listen? No. Just like they didn't listen about Geithner. Like you, I'm sick and tired of the corruption but I still contacted them 'cause we can't give up!

I have been watching certain financial networks all day today and writing pieces on my website about the stimulus. One thing that comes to mind is that Washington is constantly talking about how things need to change. Education needs to change, tax law needs to change, lobbyists need to change. If we're all about change, why is Washington still running the same way. Partisan this and that. Kids do what their parents do and not what they say. If Washington wants change, then Washington needs to do it first. How about coming together on something and not voting down party lines on everything.
It's vote day and we're on Stimulus watch at my site. It's going to pass and Obama knows that although the Republicans are making noise today.

It's amazing how quickly the radical liberals change their tune when under the spell of the Lord Of Hosts. Just weeks ago they were screaming about Bush spending us into a deficit.
