Okay, I'm trying to understand this stimulus bill that has been approved. I found this chart on one of our local new sites (this particular news station, believe it or not, has been in total support and upholding Obama in everything). Here's the link: http://www.newsnet5.com/interactivemedia/18702558/detail.html.
My question here is, why is there a higher percentage allotted for government spending than there is for tax breaks for the people? How does this spending create jobs? How can we spend money we don't have and if we're given tax breaks, where is the money to pay for spending? I can't believe $13.00 extra in pay can stimulate the economy. Why not give more in tax breaks than spending? Doesn't make much sense to me!
Because Washington WANTS new furniture.

NewMommyin06: Not all OUR Politicians. Democratic Liberal Leftist Leaning Loon Politicians who are only in it for themselves and NOT the American People. Republican Lawmakers didn't agree with it. Didn't agree with not getting to read it, didn't agree with all the pending without proportional job creation. 3 repubs If the Liberal Loon Lawmakers cared about the American People, they would have lowered Corporate Tax and Payroll Taxes to give the 92-93% of us who are WORKING a break. A break BIGGER than $13.00/week. They would encourage companies like Dell who are still building in places like Poland, to come BACK to the US and build here by offering them all sorts of tax breaks and payroll cuts. But nope. Liberal Loon Politicians need money for the likes of non profit Arts groups, Acorn, and Marshland research.

This bill was touted as a stimulus bill, but really it's just a government growth bill. Anyone listening and reading to where the money was going would have known that. Unfortunately, many people depend on the MSM to give them their information, unadulterated, and we all know that hasn't happened in quite some time.
So, has anyone else seen Wag the Dog?
