It’s 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.

I voted 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 pork bill. 

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.

We all 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.
