A few dollars more

October 13, 2008

Yeah, just keep spending that money you don’t have. What’s a lousy $150 billion when you’ve already done over a trillion?

The United States needs a new economic stimulus plan that pumps billions of dollars into infrastructure projects and budget relief for cash-strapped state and local governments, Democratic lawmakers said on Sunday.

U.S. Rep. Barney Frank, chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, told ABC television he will put together an economic stimulus bill when Congress returns to Washington after the November 4 elections, while a key Republican said he would support an effort that “makes sense.”

Come on, “key Republican” (Roy Blunt), how could this possibly be crafted in any way to make sense?

    We have all needed for a very long time to stop spending money we don’t have, … not sure how we get ourselves out of this mess. I would pop off with my standard TERM LIMITS, but we all know that’s not going to happen (like congress will put themselves out of a job) and let’s face it, no matter what the 2 presidential candidates say they are going to do, they simply don’t have the power to do half of it – “real” suggestions welcome, …
