"Stimulus" Breakdown: Only 10% of $1 Trillion Porkulus Spent This Year; Permanent Democratic Patronage Exposed

You know it's a bad plan when...

...even The Washington Post is questioning it.

Timely, targeted, temporary.

None of the above.

Taking Apart the $819 billion Stimulus Package

The centerpiece of President Obama's domestic agenda is an $819 billion economic stimulus plan. The Senate will consider the measure this week, with an eye toward the amount of tax cuts and spending. Republicans and Democrats spar over what to consider a tax cut. An analysis by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office tallies the tax-cut portion to be significantly less than the one-third Democrats claim it to be.

Remember, two weeks prior to the inauguration, the CBO anticipated "that the current recession, which started in December 2007, will last until the second half of 2009, making it the longest recession since World War II."

As we have said all along, this CRAPulus spending bill is nothing short of a Totalitarian quid pro quo that will buy a permanent Democratic majority.

Doug Ross has more information that this bill is nothing but a permanent Democratic patronage bill.
