The "stimulus" scam
You probably already knew that the spending portion of the proposed “stimulus” is just a huge slush fund for politicians to pay off their supporters, but for those who might be holding out:
Only 8% of the spending occurs in fiscal year 2009, and only 41% in FY 2009-10 combined.
In other words, pretending for a minute that spending bills can actually stimulate the economy, most of the spending will be done after no stimulus is even needed.
Can you say “Scam”? I knew you could.
