Remember all the pomp and circumstance of four months ago when President Barack Obama flew out here to Denver to sign the “stimulus” bill? The legislation that had to be rushed through? The legislation that was supposed to prevent “irreversible decline” in our economy?
While anyone with decent sense knew the “stimulus” was long-term poison, I can’t say I anticipated how badly it would flounder even in the short-term. The Competitive Enterprise Institute’s Hans Bader put together a well-documented Open Market blog post noting that public opinion clearly favors canceling the $787 billion spending spree.
How many of them have watched this unforgettable video?
A few days ago, Mr. Bob posted up the now well-circulated graphic showing how doing nothing would have been better for our nation’s employment situation than the so-called “stimulus”. Yet the Obama administration and fellow Democrat leaders steering the ship of state are convinced the problem is that government isn’t spending the money quickly enough.
God save us. Stand strong, sons of liberty. Get off the sidelines, and get involved.
