In Passing

Hey RINOs, how’s that “stimulus” workin’ for ya?


Robert Samuelson:

The program crafted by Obama and the Democratic Congress wasn’t engineered to maximize its economic impact.  It was mostly a political exercise, designed to claim credit for any recovery, shower benefits on favored constituencies and signal support for fashionable causes.  As a result, much of the stimulus’s potential benefit has been squandered...

Whatever the virtues of these programs, the effects are diluted and delayed.  The CBO estimated that nearly 30 percent of the economic effects would occur after 2010.  Ignored was any concerted effort to improve consumer and business confidence by resuscitating the most distressed economic sectors.

Just a reminder:
Susan Collins, R-Maine
Olympia Snowe, R-Maine
Arlen Specter, R-Pennsylvania (gone but not forgotten!)

1 And at the end of this term, you can add RINO Kit Bond, Sen-MO, to that list. Bond kissed up to his union buddies and voted Yes on TARP and every democrat bill since.

He's long overdue to be gone. I'm ashamed that I voted for him the last time around (2004.)

2 Haven’t done one of these for a while, but here’s the most recent installment: The List: Republicans voting for HR.1388.

Kit is ties for 10th (or 9th now that Specter has absconded).
