[T]he problems with the 1,000-plus-page bill are legion. The most basic flaw is that many of its projects costing tens of billions of dollars cannot be started for several years, meaning they will yield no short-term stimulus. It is outrageous to pass the tab for these projects on to our children and grandchildren. —Union-TribuneA Pyrrhic victory is a victory with devastating cost to the victor. Unfortunately President Obama and his Party’s $3.27Trillion dollar Demulus Stimulus bill victory will have a devastating cost to this Nation as well when he signs the Demulus bill into law today in Denver Colorado.
Demulus Stimulus so called because this bill will do more to stimulate the Democrats' hold and lust for political power, by fulfilling a laundry list of Democrat special Pork projects, than it will stimulate the American economy.(see story)
Just like taxpayers who will inevitably pay for Nadya Suleman, the Octopulets mom's 14 kids that she's raising on welfare, so too the American people will be stuck with payment of this bill until Nadya's children's children are old enough to pay for it. No doubt they and the rest of the American people will still owe for it!
But it is President Obama’s credibility that should be immediately and irreparably damaged because he promised an era of hope and change in Washington D.C. only to force his first major piece of legislation through by the same business as usual Democrat politics
Not that Democrats care, but Obama lied. He broke at least 7 of promises he made for a more ethical and open government. Promises that helped get him elected he broke at the very first opportunity to get his Demulus bill passed and signed today. (see video)
Obama’s 7 Broken Promises:According to the Union Tribune, [a]nother unforgivable flaw is how the bill makes huge changes on major national policies without any significant debate. One provision guts the 1996 welfare reform law, which reduced caseloads by 70 percent. Instead, individuals will again be entitled to unlimited lifetime benefits without work requirements and, amazingly, states will have financial incentives to increase caseloads.
1. Make Government Open and Transparent
2. Make it "Impossible" for Congressmen to slip in Pork Barrel Projects
3. Meetings where laws are written will be more open to the public (Republicans shut out)
4. No more secrecy
5. Public will have 5 days to look at a Bill
6. You'll know what's in it (Republican Senators didn’t know)
7. We will put every pork barrel project online
Other provisions appear to sharply increase the federal government's role in health care by establishing a national database of Americans' medical records and by monitoring every hospital's treatment standards on cost-containment grounds.
Defenders of the health provisions say these descriptions are inaccurate. But that brings us to the bill's final unforgivable flaw: Despite its importance and huge costs, it was enacted in such haste that no one has a firm handle on its contents and their consequences.
Yes and even Republican John Boehner says that no one has even read the thousands of pages which it would take for someone to fully know or understand the consequences that Democrats have unleashed on our nation through this bill. (see video)
But Democrat Senator Charles “Chucky” Schumer freely contradicts President Obama and admits that there is Pork in this bill but says so what? What are you going to do about it we won the election, in so many words. Sen. Schumer is convinced that you, the American people don’t even care about the cost that this bill will have on our nation. (see video)
So… do you care?
