1 Trillion Dollar Stimulus or Spending Plan?

[ 4 ] February 8, 2009 |

Stimulus StickupSeriously people of America…this is a stickup.  What in the world is going on here?!  Look, I’m no economist but are we really going o sit back and let this ridiculous “stimulus package” get passed without a peep?  The worst part is even some professional economists are unsure whether it’s even enough:

“It’s possible that this won’t be enough to jump start the economy — that, in fact, policy makers will have to come back and provide more help to the economy before all is said and done,” Mark Zandi, economist with Moody’s economy.com, told ABC News in an interview.

Well that’s super.  Now let me tell you what some of this one trillion ($1,000,000,000,000) “stimulus” plan entails.

  • $500 tax cut for most workers – (Didn’t we already try this?   Last year’s $600 rebate checks failed to “stimulate” the economy.)
  • Dog Parks
  • Federal Building Reparations
  • Water Slides
  • Frisbee golf courses

A few months back we were told if the $700+ billion financial institution bailout (Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP)) was not passed immediately the earth would stop on it’s axis, the stars would fall out of the sky and life as we knew it in the US would cease to exist.  So after much debate it was passed…and the credit sector did not rebound and no stars fell out of the celestial heavens…that I’m aware of.

So after that monumental debacle of a precedent was set,  money seemed to flow out of the capital on what seemed like a daily basis in bailouts and beggar handouts at your expense.  Now, after the zombie mantra of “change” has finally started to wane we get whacked with a near one trillion dollar stimulus plan.

God help our children who will have to shoulder much of this epic burden.

The housing market has tanked, many hard working Americans now find themselve’s jobless and we see the US government taking more and more control of the commercial sector and centralizing it’s power.  Is taxing the American citizens another one trillion dollars really going to make things any better?  I’d rather just roll the dice and ride it out at this point.  What do you think?
