Do you remember that old adage, "You can't get something for nothing?" Well the Pelosi-Reid-Soetoro (a/k/a Obama) pork 'n patronage package (stimulus bill) can be described as, "You can get nothing for something." That in a nutshell is the economic stimulus package. It does little or nothing to solve the economic downturn and it is extremely expensive. It actually is generational thievery or fiscal child abuse because that something is the massive and necessary debt being laid on generations to come.
Friend of this blog, T.D., sends another very apt quote (below) that easily could be written for what the Democrats and the three horribly misguided crazed RINO Senators did to America last week - passing the deceitfully named "The American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009." It should more appropriately be called "The American Recession-Expanding and Deficit-Building Act of 2009."
"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
“When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
