Stop the “Stimulus” plan! (Update)

…..only $90 billion out of $825 billion, or about 12 cents of every $1, is for something that can plausibly be considered a growth stimulus. And even many of these projects aren’t likely to help the economy immediately.

Read this from the Wall Street Journal for an overview of this almost trillion dollar spending plan they are trying to shove down our throats.

A few examples of what’s in this bill:

150 million to Acorn
4.8 million polar bear exhibit at the Providence, RI Zoo
$1.5 million water ride in Miami, FL.
$20 million minor league baseball museum in Durham, North Carolina;
$6.1 million for corporate jet hangars at the Fayetteville, Arkansas
$20 million for renovations at the Philadelphia Zoo;
$1.5 million program to reduce prostitution in Dayton, Ohio.
hundreds of millions for the ‘arts’
$500 million for global warming research

I am watching CSPAN debates on this bill in the U.S. House and I just heard someone  say that this bill will cost OVER $200,000 TO CREATE ONE JOB.

UPDATED:  WASHINGTON – In a swift victory for President Barack Obama, the Democratic-controlled House approved a historically huge $819 billion stimulus bill Wednesday night with spending increases and tax cuts at the heart of the young administration’s plan to revive a badly ailing economy.

The vote was 244-188, with Republicans unanimous in opposition despite Obama’s pleas for bipartisan support. Eleven Democrats voted against the measure, while no Republicans supported it.

Borrowed money, all, with interest!!  Thank you, House Republicans for voting against this.  The democrats own this one lock, stock, and barrel.

Of the Democrats, 11 voted against the measure. Among them: Allen Boyd, D-Fla., Bobby Bright, D-Ala., Jim Cooper, D-Tenn., Brad Ellsworth, D-Ind., Parker Griffith, D-Ala., Paul Kanjorski, D-Penn., Frank M. Kratovil, D-Md., Walt Minnick, D-Idaho, John E. Peterson, D-Penn., Heath Shuler, D-N.C., and Gene Taylor, D-Miss.

One response to “Stop the “Stimulus” plan! (Update)

  1. This is big news

    Make this into an article on your blog, you can just cut and paste the whole thing and post it as
    “Political Censorship on WordPress”
    And ask your readers to post it on their blogs

    The censorship has started

    First they attack talk radio, then they target Rush Limbaugh

    Now they censored me, a Presidential candidate
    That is the ultimate dictatorship
    Make it impossible for anyone to oppose you in elections

    It is how Obama won all his Illinois elections,
    By getting his opponents deleted from the ballot

    It is George Orwell’s Ministry of Truth deleting people from newspapers and now from blogs

    This is how Hitler started. Once they start deleting blogs of Presidential candidates, the next step is for the Nazi Brownshirts to knock on your door in the middle of the night
    Firs they take away your free speech, then they take away everything, because who can hear you cry out

    Somebody got wordpress to freeze my Presidential account so I cannot post

    You can still read it, but I have been notified that wordpress will soon delete it

    My only offense is being smarter than Obama. Oh, also I wrote an article about how Obama was starting to censor the news. So they censored me.

    They will come for you next

    We must fight censorship

    Email support@wordpress.com

    Say:

    “Reinstate http://franklynchusa.wordpress.com

    Because we do not want censorship of Presidential candidates regardless of what Party they are”

    Then send a blank email to frank@franklynch.org with the subject “censors”
    And add a link to your blogroll http://www.franklynch.org
