One year after President Obama’s historic, pork filled stimulus package was passed by the Democrat controlled Congress, the liberal regime claims that it saved us from economic ruin, created jobs and grew the economy. President Obama claims that this is the “view of economist from across the spectrum”. What President Obama doesn’t tell you is that is a lie. Not only do a majority of economists not agree, the actual numbers all indicate the exact opposite of what the President is trying to have us buy.
Despite his claims, unemployment has risen, self sustaining private sector jobs have not been created and even the number of temporary tax payer funded jobs that were created with stimulus money have been faked. This was made evident when recovery.gov, the federal website that shows how stimulus money was being spent, claimed to have created far more jobs than it actually did. It even claimed that stimulus money created hundreds of thousands of jobs in congressional districts that did not exist.
Established facts like these are common knowledge and most Americans understand that the one year anniversary of the so called economic recovery act is hardly an anniversary to be celebrated. Celebrating the one year anniversary of the stimulus package makes about as much sense as Hallmark producing Happy 9/11 day cards.
So while most of us understand this and realize that we can’t spend our way to prosperity, what many of us have left on the backburner is the more than $500 billion of stimulus money that still has not been spent.
That is about two thirds of the entire stimulus package, and it is still sitting there.
If spending taxpayer, debt inducing, federal money, is so critical to job creation, economic growth and the prosperity of our nation, why has most of it still not been spent? With unemployment far exceeding the level which President Obama promised the stimulus package would keep it below, why have we not spent more of the existing stimulus money? It is in the budget and it is not as though a country like Saudi Arabia or China is borrowing it from us. In fact, in the case of China, it’s just the opposite. So what is the President waiting for?
He is waiting for the few months before the midterm elections kick into high gear.
President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, the Democrat National Senate and Congressional Committees, along with the DNC, are all waiting to sit down and target the states and districts where they are going to have uphill reelection battles. The stimulus money will help boost the reelection chances of those whose reelections are in doubt. People like Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, will see lots of that remaining $500 billion plus in stimulus money sent to his state of Nevada. Troubled senators like Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas will also see a large portion of stimulus money sent to her state at the last minute. Many of the 60 to 80 congressional districts that are the home to Democrats congress members who are facing uphill reelections will also be seeing lots of stimulus money.
This is essentially what the Obama stimulus package was originally meant to do. It was meant to buy your support and that is exactly why so much of this money has been held back. It is a Democrat National Committee slush fund.
Now I know liberals will hem and haw and try to deny this. I know you will all claim that those fake congressional districts where hundreds of thousands of stimulus jobs were created are real jobs, and I know you will say that it is all George Bush’s fault, but you know what? You have been saying all this for more than a year now and its getting tired.
In the mean time, the stimulus package that still has not been fully spent has cost American a trillion dollars and still not prevented 3 million more Americans from losing their jobs.
Now anyone who would still vote for President Obama will try to deny all these facts. They will insist that having lost only three million jobs was actually an increase in the employment numbers because we could have lost five million jobs. However; that type of liberal mathematics is no longer seen as legitimate and real people do not consider a loss to be a gain. That type of new math has gone the way of ebonics and is not accepted as reliable teachings.
Liberals will continue to deny the entire economic dark age that they are throwing us into and reigning over but they will have a very difficult time trying to deny the way that the remaining stimulus money is spent during the 2010 midterm elections.
Mark my words, any Democrat facing a tough reelection battle will see large sums of the remaining stimulus money poured into their districts and states like a Bill Clinton dolling out dollars in a whorehouse.
So rest assured that President Obama, Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Reid will be carefully targeting certain troubled Democrats and issuing stimulus money to them in a way quite similar to that of how they tried to buy the votes of Blanche Lincoln, Byron Dorgan, and Mary Landrieu, during the failed attempt to pass their government run healthcare scheme.
