Please take a minute to email your congressman (list here.) to let them know that this pork-filled package of welfare and entitlements will not be tolerated.
They're trying to ram this thing through as quickly as possible so that YOU, dear astute reader, won't have time to object.
The package contains some absolutely outrageous items. Remember it is YOUR money that they're wasting.
* Left-wing fraudsters ACORN and other subprime shakedown activists get $4 billion for “neighborhood stabilization”
* Hollywood Liberal Elites get $246 million in new targeted tax breaks
* Universal health care promotion - to the tune of $600 million
* “Green job” projects get $24 billion
Don't listen to the politicians who have a vested interest in getting this money stripped out of your paychecks. They don't know how to stimulate this economy, and never will. The only proven way to jumpstart an economy is to cut taxes, and reduce government regulations.
A coalition of 200 economists from the Cato Institute put out a statement decrying this ridiculous package.
“More government spending by Hoover and Roosevelt did not pull the United States economy out of the Great Depression in the 1930s,” they said. “More government spending did not solve Japan’s ‘lost decade’ in the 1990s. As such, it is a triumph of hope over experience to believe that more government spending will help the U.S. today.”
