According to what congress tells us, we are BROKE. But look what the Democrats and some Republican SENATORS have done to pile on the PORK I said PORK.
This is the comment I sent out about 3 days ago. Next time you see your Senator tell him/her thanks a lot for the EXCESSIVE AND WASTEFUL SPENDING Congress does not have a revenue problem, it has a SPENDING PROBLEM..
After the divisive intro-movement battle in the House over taxes, here is a fight in the Senate we can all join in together. Obama and Reid are using the disaster of Hurricane Sandy to push through a $60.4 billion package that is full of pork and special interest handouts. Only $11.5 billion will go towards FEMA’s disaster relief fund. CBO projects that 64% of the funds will not be spent until FY 2015. The entire rationale of an emergency bill is that the aid money is desperately needed now. The fact that much of the funds will not be spent for several years reveals this as a liberal stimulus bill.
AND THEN THE SENATE PASS THE BILL Sick – Sick Tell the Senate THANKS A LOT
The Congressional Budget Office has estimated that only about $9 billion of the $60.4 billion proposed by Democrats would be spent over the next nine months. The Democratic bill included many large infrastructure projects that often require years to complete, but Republicans said the CBO estimate of such drawn-out spending undercuts the urgency of the Democrats’ aid package.
