2-11 I am so frustrated with this "stimulus" bill, where do I start?
To begin with, there is very little stimulating of our economy now in the bill! Explain to me how giving money to groups like Planned Parenthood or education for birth control helps stimulate the economy. I suppose, in a liberal's twisted brain, birth control means fewer Americans which means fewer Americans that need financial assistance from the government, but even that is years down the road.
According to the Congressional Budget Office, a nonpartisan group, Obama's bill will actually HURT the economy! Glenn Beck made some interesting observations yesterday. He said that after the Stock Market crash in 1929, Congress did the exact same thing that they are doing now--spending money to try to recover. Well, we know how that turned out! It resulted in that beautiful decade we now call the Depression.
People had to work themselves out of the economic collapse then, and we have to do it now. Government can't do it for us. All the spending they are doing is only increasing the size of government, the control they have over our lives, and the prosperity of the Democrat government for years to come. Unless we make our voices heard, King Obama will bring socialism and economic collapse to our country in a way that we may never recover from.
I've heard that the economy is like a roller coaster, having low dips and then sailing high. The third quarter of this year is supposed to be when our economy should begin recovering. With Obama's Socialist Bill, I wonder if the government is messing with this roller coaster. And with anyone (like me) that likes roller coasters, going down and down is no fun if you can't go back up again.
There's another part to this. Three socialist Republicans decided to join King Obama, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Majority Leader Harry Reid, and the Democrats. They are Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania and Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe of Maine.
Like I said before, now is the time for people to speak up. The government is not the answer! Republicans are not even necessarily the answer. What we need is to let Congress and King Obama know how we feel.
The one bright spot I've heard was that congressional phone lines were all tied up a couple days ago from people calling to complain about the spending bill. that's what we need. Power to the people!
