    Obama's Trojan Horse: Bailout Signals New Welfare State

    Obama's Trojan Horse: Bailout Signals New Welfare State

    President-elect Barack Obama’s proposed $775 billion stimulus package, being sold as a cure-all for the ailing economy, is little more than a checklist for funding the pricey social-services agenda that he promised during his campaign.

    Some experts say that the Trojan horse of pork and welfare spending will ultimately worsen the recession and drive the nation deeper into debt, according to financial experts.

    Most of Obama’s costliest promises have found their way into the so-called American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan, which now includes everything from an expansion of Pell grants for college students, to health care for the unemployed, to an expansion of unemployment benefits, to investment in renewable energy.

    “This legislation appears to blanket government programs in spending with little thought toward real economic results, job creation or respect for the taxpayer," said Rep. Jerry Lewis, R-Calif., ranking Republican on the House Appropriations Committee. "I'm scratching my head trying to determine how items like $50 million in funding for the National Endowment for the Arts will create jobs or provide relief for families across the country."

    It they would listen to WE THE PEOPLE and stop thinking that they know best for us.Yes, We must work together to fix this mess, but somehow together has a different meaning for him than us. Working together to me meas listening to the people he represents. Working together for him means do what I way when I say it . So in reality there is no working toether. He is pan with his flute leading us to desparaty, division etc. HE is not the person to bring us together.
