So, this is the Obama stimulus package that you want?
Question by Johnny: So, this is the Obama stimulus package that you want?
A new stimulus package plan unveiled Friday by Democrats include the following:
650 million – to help Americans upgrade to digital cable.
44 million – to repair & improve the HQ of the Dept. of Agriculture.
276 million – to upgrade & modernize info technology at the State Dept.
3.1 billion for the Dept. of Energy for basic research of physical science.
209 million – for maintenance work on all federal Agriculture research Services
400 million – in repairs for various “national treasures” including the National Mall & Smithsonian.
850 million – for “wild fire management”.
400 million – for “habitat restoration”.
2.7 billion for rural water & waste disposal.
2.4 billion for projects demonstrating carbon-capture technology.
2 billion – for day care.
and an undisclosed amount for other projects and programs… also some will be used for some health care related programs, but not universal health-care…
Nothing in this Obama stimulus package includes job creations or to help the economy. This is nothing more than Government waste spending as usual!
Well, when you lose your house & job, if you haven’t already, remember, you voted on Nov. 4th, now live with it when you are on the street corner asking for “change”… Now, you got “change”!
Answer by Zinger
The major problem I have with Obama’s stimulus package as with any package of this nature proposed by a politician is that there is a high degree of probability a lot of ‘pork barrel’ will be offered up and the money squandered. Any government program is easily subject to misuse of funds. I see a lot of ‘grease’ in this package.
