This makes me ill. The thought that Senators and Representatives would ram this bill through Congress without giving anyone - even themselves a chance to read it tells me no one is looking out for the interests of the American taxpayer anymore. And anyone who votes for it deserves to be thrown out of office ASAP.
When government spends money, it comes out of your paycheck,leaving you with less to spend on what is important to you. A bill of this size will leave us all poorer, and our children, and our grandchildren poorer, for decades to come. And the worst part is, the money will support many questionable liberal organizations and promote liberal philosophies and "causes".
I will post as many articles as I can and encourage all who read this to call their Congressmen before noon tomorrow. This Washington Post article will begin to give readers an indication of the enormity ofthis bill.
"Taking Apart the $819 billion Stimulus Package The centerpiece of President Obama's domestic agenda is an $819 billion economic stimulus plan. The Senate will consider the measure this week, with an eye toward the amount of tax cuts and spending. Republicans and Democrats spar over what to consider a tax cut. An analysis by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office tallies the tax-cut portion to be significantly less than the one-third Democrats claim it to be."
