The Stimulus Bill aka Porkulus Bill Is A Bad Idea

– As House Minority Leader John Boehner said on Friday, “90 percent of a bad idea is still a bad idea.

– Senator John McCain’s first reaction several days ago was to join others in proposing his own version of the stimulus bill. His price tag was a mere $425 billion! NOW McCain’s talking tough. He recently said, “If this legislation is passed, it’ll be a very bad day for America.” He also told the press; “We want to stimulate the economy, not mortgage the future of our children and grandchildren by the kind of fiscally profligate spending embodied in this legislation.

– Senator Lindsey Graham initially appeared to indicate that he was willing to play “Let’s Make A Deal.” A few days ago he said; “Get us all in a room. That’s what you do with a major piece of legislation.” He even told a group of business owners in Spartanburg, South Carolina; “I don’t like borrowing more of your money than we’ve already borrowed but I find myself in a position where I don’t believe the private sector has the ability to jump start our economy.” By Friday, Graham didn’t appear as willing to negotiate! He told Greta Van Susteren of FOX News: “The process that’s led to this bill stinks. There is no negotiating going on here! Nobody is negotiating! We’re making this up as we go!

– Senator Mitch McConnell initially appeared content to put lipstick on this pig of a bill and offered the following statement: “We look forward to offering amendments to improve this critical legislation and move it back to the package President Obama originally proposed.” NOW he’s singing a different tune and is calling the so-called stimulus an “aimless spending spree that masquerades as a stimulus.

Pretending to be Democrats while pretending to stimulate the economy while pretending to help the American Worker is bad policy.
