The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act is a fancy name for Obama and the Democrats’ laundry list of social entitlements. This bill is filled with so many liberal agendas hidden in over 700 pages of complex autocratic words, it’s no wonder the average American doesn’t know how dangerous it is. I’d be surprised if even half of Congress and the Senate really understand it. There is NO WAY this bill was recently written. Pelosi and her comrades had these social items written a long time ago and she was just waiting until she could ram them down our throats.
If you read the condensed version, written by the House Appropriations Committee, it doesn’t sound so bad. A list of departments and what they’ll cost. To the untrained eye, and well… brain, it looks like it could stimulate…something. But that something sure as heck isn’t the economy.
There’s 1 billion dollars for the Bureau of the Census. There's also 890 million for the Social Security Administration. What’s the problem with the two of those? Three million dollars from the SSA is designated to fund a Census to report on the impact of past and future minimum wage increases in American Somoa and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. Besides not needing a billion dollars in censuses in an economic crisis, does anyone besides me see a problem with taking 3 million dollars from SSA to fund a census?
I’m also a bit curious as to why it matters what the impact of minimum wage is on 2 Pacific Ocean Islands whose gross populations equal less than 150K? We’re going to waste 3 million dollars to see how minimum wage affects theses islands WHY? One Island only has a land area of 77 sq miles. It’s not like we’re going to build a bunch of island businesses and send tens of thousand of Americans there for jobs!
That’s just ONE small tidbit hidden in this Debit Package that Obama wants to sink us with. It’s debt that our great-grandchildren will be paying for. This PELOSI PORK PACKAGE will NOT create jobs in the private sector, it will NOT spur the economy and it will NOT stimulate anything except more government, more entitlement programs and eventually higher taxes, interest rates and inflation.
Obama said he inherited a trillion dollar defecit. What’s his cure? Increase it by another trillion. Then allow Turbo Tim to increase it by another trillion or two. These clowns are out of hand. We The People need to get OUR Country back from these CROOKS. They are stealing our children and grand-children’s futures. Obama’s mind-set that “Government is the only solution” has to be stopped. With an attitude like that we are in for more spending and a government so large we’ll be shackled to them forever. Obama, Pelosi and their team of Left-Winged-Wack-Jobs are using this Debt Package to enslave us and future generations of Americans for years to come.
