Therefore, explains the comment from some who call it a tax giveaway.
But that isn't the real issue; Obama's plan not only is silent about how to pay for all the largess, but his tax rebates don't even apply to those who pay most of the taxes in the nation.
It is flagrant in its class envy populist message. I am still waiting for a Liberal to explain to me what societies ever taxed, spent and printed (money) their nations into prosperity.
Hopefully the moderate Republicans who have indicated support for a sensible course of action (Snowe, Collins, Specter) will be a part of the final negotiations.
Are you coming to bed?
I can't. This is important.
Someone is WRONG on the internet! -XKCD
Once again, since I'm sure your memory didn't catch this: all of these things are good to have during normal economic times, but NOT, I repeat NOT, during a crisis as part of a economic stimulus bill. Is that clear enough for you Pancho? Now go read the fine print in the bill before you make such ignorant accusations.
According to this poster and Obama...all government spending is stimulative, duh!!!
I mean, if we're going to follow that logic, then why even have private business at all?
And it looks like he's taking cues from Chuck Schumer, too. Hell, even if the spending is porky, Americans don't care anyway. LMAO!
So we have Obama denying there's any pork at all in the bill.
Then we have Schumer telling us that there is, but we mere common folk don't care.
This is the hope and change I expected....
