If you have not been living under a rock or in a cave for the past couple of weeks then you know that Obama has begun his mission of stimulating the US economy. Stimulation is needed but let’s just take a look at this “stimulation” plan. By the way, is Obama in charge or is the evil one, Nancy Pelosi, pulling the strings and making Obama dance? Just a thought. Here is some of the pork in the plan that is supposed to “stimulate” the US economy.
- The Senate stimulus contains $50 million for habitat restoration and other water needs in the San Francisco Bay Area. There is another $62 million for military projects in Guam. (which leader is from San Fran?)
- The House bill includes an amendment authored by Democratic Rep. Bruce Braley setting aside $500 million for biofuel makers, which he says, would bring jobs home to Iowa (biofuel problems can be seen here.)
- There’s $198 million to compensate Filipino World War II veterans for their service. Most don’t live in the United States.
