The media has failed to ask the real question – What about the stimulus plan money? Remember – the $780+ billion dollar slush fund Congress gave to President Obama last year? Vice President Joe Biden tells us that $600 billion of the stimulus money has been spent. That means $180+ billion in stimulus money remains.
So why doesn't this latest $26 billion porkfest come out of the existing stimulus slush fund?
Because Democrats always need more money, to buy votes from government workers and entitlement program recipients. Give them $780 billion, they want $900 billion. Give them $900 billion, they want a trillion.
As a retired school teacher and hot headed union person, I want to thank you tax payers for bailing out all of my union and union friends benefits. As I heard one person say if my union/welfare benefits are cut I may have to pinch pennies.
Yea for the unions to take good care of the members.
I've got some bad news. California is broke. Illinois is broke. Most states are going broke. And the Republicans who will win Congress in November won't approve any more of these ridiculous bail outs.
You might even have to -- work for a living.
I know. What a horrible thought!
The sooner they crash the economy, the sooner we all become dependent on government handouts, the sooner they will have their socialist "Utopia".
Work for the government, work for the Union, get government handout. LIberals wanted "freedom" instead these boobs are ushering in Big Brother and it's consequent rationing and across the board wealth destruction.
The monkey is spending it in spain.. trip costing estimated 4 million bucks unbeleivablr yrt hr wants to spread wealth huh?

DW8311, You are like all the Dems. You say something stupid and then either dissapear or can't back up what you said with any facts !!!!! How about giving us all an explanation on why the $26 bil. is going to be used for Obamas union shills ?????
......................repubs left the house of our country on fire..obama put it out..and now they want us to put repubs back in charge, after the fire is going out, and things are just starting to improve!!!!!!!!!
Are you saying that Dems aren't planning an additional $26 BILLION in stimulus money? And adding another $26 BILLION to the deficit?
If so -- you're a liar, just like our President.
