Do You Know How Your Stimulus Money Was Spent?
Stimulus money spent to “create” or as the Obama administration likes to say using their new economic terminology, “save” jobs: $157.8 BILLION
Cost of each job “created”: $246,436
Average earnings by a payroll employee during October 2009: $59,867
Cost of the damages the Obama administration has inflicted on this country:
The stimulus money has created very few private sector jobs. What it to create these jobs is obscene. According to the Obama Administration’s own numbers, statistics show from February 2009 through October 2009, 640,329 jobs were created. http://recovery.gov/
I’m not very good at math, so I’m referring to the experts to do the math for me.
The example I’d like to give today as another very good reason this stimulus hasn’t worked, and won’t work in the future is this:
When the federal government gets into the business of taking money from its citizens and dispensing it for absolutely outrageous programs such as this one (obviously there are many, many more such programs our tax dollars are wasted on) it is wrong. It has been far to many years that this has been going on.
This is not what our federal government constitutionally should be taking our taxes for:
“Section 8. The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defense and general Welfare of the United States…”
I wish someone could show me where in that section it gives the Federal Government the right to take our tax money to give to UCLA to teach men in Africa how to wash their private parts. If someone can tell me how this defends our country or is good for the general welfare of the United States I need to be told. Because I’m just not seeing it.
Vote this November. No matter what it takes – no matter how busy you are no matter how much of a pain it might be to get yourself to your voting booth or get an absentee ballot. Do it.
We need to fix our federal government from the bottom up. We need to then focus on our public school system as well and take out the unions then fix our schools from the bottom up. I say overhauling our schools is next in importance because the liberals have taken over our schools for over a generation now. They are broken and our children are brainwashed today as they have been for years with liberal agendas.
They need to get back to learning American History the way it actually happened instead of liberal revisionist history. The children need to be taught to read good, classic books, not “Fidy Cent” and his newest biography – from thug to Rapper Thug.
The children of our nation need to be taught once again with an emphasis on the basics. Reading, writing and arithmetic. Period. We must have schools that teach rather than brainwash in progressive, socialist garbage.
The schools need to be taken away from the unions and never unionized again. We need to raise up a generation of children who can think for themselves so that we never again elect another Pelosi, Reid or Obama again. Ever.
