Read it and weep reported $850 Billion, 334 pages, and counting... somebody needs to read The American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009

And they have links to the bill text, both in PDF and TXT, and the committee report, both in PDF and TXT.

Oh, My God... Libby Wright reported Those were the words of House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) when he saw the incoming Obama Administration and Democratic Leadership’s proposal that was released yesterday to “stimulate” the economy. Boehner went on to say that, “I just can’t tell you how shocked I am at what we’re seeing. You know it’s clear that they’re moving on this path along the flawed notion that we can borrow and spend our way back to prosperity.”

Yid with a lid blogged Remember ACORN? They were the group that President-elect Obama used to work with. During the presidential campaign their fraudulent voter registration drives were news almost every day. ACORN was famous for registering dead people, the same people in multiple counties, and even giving Mickey Mouse the right to vote. The Democrats are rewarding ACORN for their fine Illegal work by throwing some cash their way in the Obama stimulus plan: Looks like the infamous ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) that was caught up in voter fraud in 2008 will be in the running to get some funding (pages 72-73 of the report.) The bill provides for $10 million for the SHOP program. The funding will provide competively awarded grants to national and regional nonprofit housing organizations to develop or rehabilitate low-income housing.

Giving $10 million to a group that should be prosecuted with RICO is bad, but I bet there are worse things in the bill. Read it and weep.

You know what really bothers me. The fact that there are dead people in other countries collecting Social Security from us in the US. Why are we in trouble?

Now let's take on the CEO's of the big companies that failed or didn't fail, and lets take on Madoff *lost 1 million, not me, my friends... they will recoup $250,000 of that or maybe not. There is something wrong with this whole picture.

People have been digging into the middle class pots, to give to the poor *are the poor getting anything> or are the bigwig crooks getting away with murder. I was stupid enough to lose $3000, but I have other friends who lost 6 figures. Guess I got off cheap....ANON

PS: TO DIG A DEEPER HOLE, LETS LOOK AT THE WAR. War is big business, but how many trillions of dollars, between bailouts and guns are we going to be able to sustain. Why do we pussyfoot around these wars. Lets just get the arsonal out and DO SOMETHING FOR PETE'S SAKE. AND GET OUR BOYS *AND GIRLS OUT OF HARMS WAY.

I also think that the US is preventing Israel from nuking the whole damn middle east. I'm sure they would love to do it, but we always pull our guns back and let more young people get killed. Oh Where oh Where is Harry Truman when you need him. It only took one small nuke to end WW2.

I hate war, but what alternatives do we have now. Innocent lives are always lost, so what makes a nuclear war so different. I am starting to think about this and truly believe that is the only way you can knock out all this nonsense in the middle east. They are our downfall.

OK, enough babbling for today. Don, am I wrong here?>

Weep????? We have all done our share.....ANON
