Stimulus money was suppose to recover the economy and provide jobs, right?
Instead the stimulus was full of waste. Just a few examples:The State of Illinois is spending your stimulus money on road signs to announce to drivers that the construction you are passing is being paid for with, you guessed it, your stimulus money. Senator Tom Harkin's nearly $2 million earmarked for swine odor research in Iowa. In Portland, Oregon, stimulus in the amount of $1 million on covered garages for people's bicycles.
So, they spent over 700 billion. Did they get it right? People are still losing jobs...
If they got it right, why is the government wanting to continue paying out on unemplyment extensions?

The problem is that there are liberals out there who criticize those who disagree with the continued spending~as heartless... It doesn't matter that DC libs spent 800 billion on a Stimulus that was suppose to improve the economy and create jobs. Here we are... Consumer Confidence is WORSE. Unemployment is still at record levels. Foreclosures are mounting..... So, instead of reanalyzing the pet projects that liberals conned the American People into believing would somehow HELP the country, they claim they need more. They are using those on unemployed as their ploy to get more money to spend.... So liberals currently in Congress have a free pass to spend spend spend and will continue cry they need more for U.B. They know they can make opposition look bad on this one..
