Red State does a great job of drawing out the pork in a 825 billion dollar “must have right away or the nation will sink into a depression like you have never seen before” stimulus package.
Are you curious about what’s in the stimulus bill? We’ve put it online at ReadTheStimulus.org, and have even parsed the 334-page document on this spreadsheet, line by line and page by page, to reveal the hundreds of billions in new spending that this monstrosity authorizes.
Go check it out for yourself — then call your Congressman and Senator, and let them know that things like $1,000,000,000 for new Censuses, $400,000,000 for “habitat restoration and migration activities,” $150,000,000 for “bridge removal,” $800,000,000 more for Amtrak, and $200,000,000 for the “leaking underground storage tank trust fund” aren’t what you want your tax dollars spent on, especially in a supposed effort to “stimulate” the economy, which these programs (and so many others in the bill) decidedly will not do.
One woman’s pork is another’s investment … in this case I guess Pelosi has her own definition of pork.
I wish I could tell you how these loathsome human beings get away with this kind of speak time after time … I just don’t know … but they do. This is the same woman who had the cashews to try to redefine Catholic theology in her own image. She is a particularly despicable person on that count alone.
