Well House Republicans stood strong against the Porkapalooza that will saddle my children with an unbearable burden they don’t deserve. $800 billion to a trillion dollars (with interest) and that’s just this year and doesn’t count TARP or SON OF TARP. $3 trillion I heard. I’ve lost track. I will find some links to help out on this. But for now … her are your House leaders who tried mightily to create jobs at a lower cost and … Democrat or Republican … were actually looking out for your children and their children. Lord help us when they get the bill.
Update: OK … Instapundit has some nice links.But here’s a portion of the AP story.
Told that no Republican backed the measure, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs reacted by citing another number: “3.5 million jobs that we look forward to saving or creating.”
That’s my favorite … save or retain. It’s the oldest economiuc development scam in the books. The article continues with the sad part.
Republicans said the package won’t work because it has too little in tax cuts and spreads too much money around to everyday projects like computer upgrades for federal agencies.
“This legislation falls woefully short,” said House GOP Leader John Boehner of Ohio. “With a price tag of more than $1 trillion when you factor in interest, it costs every family almost $10,000 in added debt. This is an act of generational theft that our children and grandchildren will be paying for far into the future.”
Hey you young Democrats for Obama … you pay for this too. Well, umm, actually you guys don’t pay … I forgot.
