I have to tell you that for the first time today, I felt fear about the economy. Why today? Because the Senate vote for the stimulus bill takes place today at noon and it will pass. I really am afraid. Senator Hatch puts it well in an interview today on KSL. This interview is my quote of the week: Senator Hatch on Utah’s Morning News.
Here two of the best lines from it:
“The Democrats keep pushing for more and more spending and then they blame Republicans for doing it.”
“When you’re paying about $632,000 to $2 million per job that’s outrageous; it’s not a good deal for Americans.”
I’ve been reading a lot on this bill and the pork spending that’s hidden throughout. If you want to read what I’ve been reading about what’s included in the bill and why it should be feared, check out the links I’ve posted on Tumblr.
