Political Stimulus Package
The man on camera is Rep. John Campbell. He stands as a voice of reason among a multitude of political opportunists. Of course, his plea for fiscal responsibility goes unheeded. If after watching this video, you don’t get the urge to down the Maalox, you probably have your hand out.
Putting it another way, something is being stimulated…ahem….but it ain’t the economy.
“In concurrence with the Federal Reserve, Congress and the White House have been putting together a $150 billion fiscal stimulus package. Both of these measures aim to avert negative growth in the short term, but as ominous economic indicators pile up, it is becoming increasingly unlikely that these actions will have a significant impact on the slide into recession.”
Knowing all that, why do you think duh gubment passed this “economic stimulus package,” anyway? Because it’s politically popular, that’s why. It’s also why “politics” and “reason” should never be mentioned in the same sentence. This is duh….gubment at its best. I think I’ll go vomit now.
