You Say You Want a Revolution?

First a $700+B spending spree and now a budget with a $1.2+T deficit?


There’s more and Doug Ross has it all.

To quote the Beatles: “When you talk about destruction, don’t ya know that you can count me out?”

  1. Do you even know what is in the Stimulus package? I suggest you start by totaling up the projects that this url leads you to – http://www.stimuluswatch.org/project/by_state/IN – and figure out just how many A&E Firms, Construction Contractors and Inspectors this will employ. Then come back and tell us the specifics of your objections not just mouthing Rush’s bylines. Here are a few projects by state.

  2. Without a calculator I can’t even count all of these projects. And we’re supposed to believe that the Dems studied the needs of each state to distinguish the worthy from the unworthy?

    Please! I might have been born at night, figuratively speaking, but I wasn’t born last night.

    You’ll also notice I didn’t drill into the next level of inquiry, which Democrats’ due diligence should have, specifically whether these projects’ characteristics are such that they will actually stimulate the economy.

    The burden of proof isn’t on me anyway – it’s on the people who just appropriated $700+B without reading the bill their staffers wrote.
