Stimulus package is half spending...translates into pork...

If you take the $780,000,000,000 and divide it up among 300 million people in this country, that comes to $2600 per person.

Now suppose instead of throwing all that money at bullshit projects, people who don't pay taxes, or giving a measly $600 to single taxpayers and $1000 for taxpaying married couples, say that we divide it among the "taxpayers" ONLY and say that number is just half - 150 million. That comes to $5200 per every taxpayer in America. A single taxpayer could make quite a dent with that much money and even better--a married couple would have $10,400. What could THEY do with that?

Ask yourself, what would you do with it?

If you want to see the latest stimulus package, go to the legislative area of the Library of Congress website. Click here ----> HR1: The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009

This thing is close to being passed. It's nearly 50% pork. We can't let it pass.

    I have emailed my senators and congressman. I hope it doesn't pass, but I'm afraid it will. After all remember what Obama said-he won, so he gets his way. ~ST

  2. HoLY cOw!! I found your blog after typing

    780000000000/300000000

    into Google. Your page was the only result that showed up. It is refreshing to see someone thinking like me. I have been saying this is what the "bailout" should have been all along.

    And now with the #OccupyWallStreet revolution going on this is back in the news...But what can be done... this remains to be seen
