"Stimulus"

Read it and weep. Or drink. Or drink, then weep.

-$6 billion to weatherize "modest income homes."

-$6 billion to provide internet in "underserved" areas

-$6 billion for "higher education modernization."

-$20 billion in health information technology to "prevent medial mistakes."

-$20 billion to increase food stamp funding

-$87 billion to provide a "temporary" increase in Medicaid funding

-$300 million to provide rebates for people who purchase Energy Star products

-$600 million for the federal government to buy brand new energy efficient cars

-$400 million for state and local governments to buy brand new energy efficient cars

-$2.4 billion for carbon capture demonstration programs

-$350 million to research using energy efficient technology on military bases

-$300 million for grants and loans to state and local governments for projects that reduce diesel emissions, "benefiting public health and reducing global warming"

-$500 million for energy efficient manufacturing demonstration projects.

-$400 million to build major research facilities "that perform cutting edge science"

-$1.5 billion for expanding "good jobs in biomedical research"

Etc., etc., etc.

Remember after 9/11, critics claimed that the FBI had simply dusted off all of its long-standing wish-lists and presented them to the public trusting crisis would get them passed?

Well, I didn't really think that was the case.

But here?

Seems like this is just a huge excuse to pass liberals' wish-lists of command-and-control spending.

Thanks to A. Weasel.
