I Am So Mad I Could Just Spit

I Am So Mad I Could Just Spit

When the Bush stimulus bill went through the House it came out with virtually no "pork" in it. After it left the Senate it looked like a Christmas Tree with all the crap hanging on it from members repaying their supporters with special interest legislation.

It passed and immediately we found that there were no controls on the spending. AIG did a $500,000 party with some of the money.

This week we found out that the big spender Wall Street types have now given themselves huge bonuses with our money because there was nothing in the rules that said they could not do that.

This morning NPR is reporting that the Obama stimulus bill that just passed the house with no special legislation or pork or Christmas Ornaments is now being laden with things that have nothing to do with stimulating the economy. The Democrats are now getting funding though this bill to pay for projects that were vetoed by Bush. When is this madness going to end? Why when all of us are feeling the pain and understand the problem our elected officials in Washington remain so very ignorant?
