    Senate Approves Aid Package to States

    Excerpted from “Senate Approves Aid Package to States” By COREY BOLES, The Wall Street Journal, AUGUST 5, 2010, 1:09 P.M. ET
    The Senate voted Thursday to approve a package of $26 billion in aid for state and local governments, funded partly by an $11 billion tax increase on U.S. multinational corporations.

    In what was one of the final moves by the Senate before lawmakers depart Washington for the summer recess, Democrats were able to score a significant victory for a core constituency of their party: labor unions and public-sector workers.

    But at the same time, they handed a hefty tax bill to U.S. companies with units overseas that have been able to pay a lower corporate income tax rate on profits derived from their foreign businesses. …
    Another major victory for government serving the people at their time of need while closing a loop hole in tax law that only the biggest corporations could love.

    This bill will save thousands of teachers jobs so that the next generation of Americans doesn't start suffering for the fiscal sins of foregoing generations this year.
    “Real environmentalists live in cities, and they visit what's left of the wilderness as gently and respectfully as possible.” — Donna Moulton, letter to the editor, Tucson Weekly, published on August 23, 2001

    HAHAHA No.
    26,000,000,000 in hand outs for votes, at the cost of future economic opportunity by punishing the private sector (Ya know, those evil bastards that create wealth and sustainable jobs?)!

    BRILLIANCE!!! And you people wonder why the economy isn't recovering under Obama....
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    You create wealth by taking raw materials and turning them into finished goods. Those evil bastards (your words, not mine) have been outsourcing jobs offshore. And despite your claims in another thread, their taxes have never been lower and participation of unions in the workforce have never been lower.

    Hey, one day we can all just get welfare and get paid with money that's worth nothing, while we sit around and do nothing. The progressive utopia.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
