now official. After 100% opposition by the Republicans in the US House
of Representatives to the incredibly wasteful and disastrous trillion
dollar pork package sent to Congress by President Obama, it is now the
Obama economy. He grabbed it. He bought it. It’s his.
for Senator McCain for President only because the Democrat candidate was
even further to the left. I identify myself as a conservative first,
and a Republican second. But I must say that I was never more proud of
being a Republican than when the Republicans in the US House of
Representatives voted unanimously against the so-called stimulus package
that the new President said was designed to create or save (whatever
that means) four million jobs.
Let’s see, a trillion dollars
divided by 4 million means that every job should pay $250,000 per year.
Of course, that’s not true. First, it won’t create as many jobs as it
destroys by devaluing the dollars that would otherwise be used to
restore the economy. Second, the jobs will be of the $30 thousand to
$40 thousand variety, and the rest will go to grow the government which
will expand its control over your life and mine.
To put it
bluntly, the Obama stimulus package is a hoax. And shortly, when the
American people wake up and realize it is a hoax, as they most surely
will, they cannot and will not blame it on the Republicans who voted
100% against it.
Hooray for the Republican leadership in the US
House of Representatives and for each Republican member of Congress (as
well as those responsible Democrats) who opposed the trillion dollar
In 1993, the House Republicans similarly voted 100%
against Bill Clinton’s budget and in 1994 they took control of the US
House of Representatives for the first time in more than 40 years.
That’s probably not going to happen this time, but if the Democrats
continue with their wild, out-of-control spending and radical policies,
the sand is going to run out on their time of control.
need to thank the House Republicans for holding the line. If they keep
it up, the reign of Pelosi, Reid and Obama will be a short one.
