From Politico: Obama to GOP: 'I Won'
“We expressed our concerns about some of the spending that’s being proposed in the House bill,” House Minority Leader John Boehner said after meeting with Obama.
“How can you spend hundreds of millions of dollars on contraceptives?” Boehner asked. “How does that stimulate the economy?”
It doesn't. This is a hint of what our new stimulus package is going to include: millions of dollars of worthless pet projects that will do nothing to turn the economy around. But that's the way politics operates. A nice spending package is put together, full of worthwhile projects. Then this is added, and that is added. The millions pile up. And suddenly contraceptives have become an important piece of the legislation.
How do these people get away with this? And how do they sleep at night? This is not how I want my tax money spent!!!
Pelosi suggested that the package, currently at $825 billion, could become even larger.
“It has grown,” Pelosi said, “and we’re still in the process.”
It's going to be funny to see what else these people can find to spend our money on.
But worst of all are the refundable tax credits that will be paid out to those who don't earn enough to pay taxes. In essence, the government will now be using my tax money to pay people for being poor!! How do I get in on that deal? Why would people want all these new jobs the government is creating if they are going to be paid by the government to sit around and do nothing?
