“Stimulus” Vote Expected Wednesday

The U.S. House of Representatives is expected to vote on President Barack Obama’s $825-Billion “stimulus” bill on Wednesday. The bill is one big unConstitutional spending spree on items like Digital TV Coupons and tax “credits” for people who don’t pay income taxes.

Even worse, the so-called stimulus can’t boost long-term economic growth. Every dime that the government blows on this spending spree would have to be taxed from today’s workers or borrowed from tomorrow’s. In other words, in order to put money into the economy, the government would first have to take that money out. And when government takes money out of the economy, it takes that money away from investment, suppressing business building and job creation. That means that the “stimulus” package would actually diminish–not boost–prosperity.

The only thing that President Obama’s “stimulus” plan would stimulate is government growth.

Please contact your Representative and urge him or her to vote against the stimulus bill. If you do not know how to reach your Representative, click here.

  1. Well, the Obama Kick Back Bill was passed. I just know the $5 Billion going to ACORN is going to stimulate the economy, and also the $350 Million for Condoms , I mean Sex Education will stimulate the economy. Oh Well at least it will stimulate some teenagers. Condoms for every boy and girl in Junior High.

    Nobilis. Have you even looked at this Chicago Style Kick Back Bill. Most of this money goes to the people that got Obama Elected, unions, Acorn and other Liberal organizations. It will not stimulate the economy and will just leave more and more debt to out next generation.

  2. Where would you rather see the money “invested”… on US infrastructure projects that will employ US workers and US companies, or in the “compensation” of executives who will take their job openings, their incomes, and their taxes out of the country?

    If there’s anything we’ve learned from laissez-faire economics, it’s that large corporations can’t be trusted to “invest” their money in the public good. Their vision extends only to that quarter’s bottom line, and no further.
