Oinking stimulus

I cannot believe that our leaders really believe that the proposed spending is going to save the economy. And I truly do not believe most of them do believe it. Unfortunately, I think many are using this perceived crisis to push their agenda and trap us in spending for years to some.

Michelle Malkin is calling this the "Generational Theft Act" and she has links on her blog to both bills, as well as a lot of information about what they contain. Can someone tell me how this helps the economy:

"The House Democrats' bill includes $335 million for sexually transmitted disease education and prevention programs at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned."

What?! Add to that $400 million for HIV and chlamydia testing. Huh?

Huge new spending on education: $150 billion that would more than double federal expenditures on something they shouldn't even be messing in.

Read more about how this bill will not do what the democrats are saying it will. Here. Here.

And call your congressman and senators.

Update: An info filled piece from Human Events.

Wasn't there something about "lipstick on a pig" during the campaign? Seems like that's what we're dealing with here.

Thanks for the round-up, Jane.

Thanks for the laugh, EC. I needed it this morning! Can't wait to see you! :)
