    It’s 2009 again: Obama Admin’s RebuildAmerica spending plan on infrastructure sounds familiar

    The WH again this week putting the spotlight on funding for infrastructure projects as a way of boosting economy and creating jobs.


    The “#RebuildAmerica” pitch sounds awfully similar to what the administration pushed for and got in 2009, which was a “stimulus” to the tune of hundreds of billions of dollars, with much of that supposedly being put towards infrastructure.Obama chose not to do this in 2009, $800 BILLION "Stimulus", wasted instead. Given to state employees and unions and other Obama cronies....


    Obama famously admitted: "Guess those jobs weren't so shovel ready." Funny!


    Obama's infrastructure spending will build a huge bridge across the Rio Grande; like everything liberals do, it will be  "for the children"!

    "Propublica"- a George Soros funded leftist shill...


     


    President Obama said in February 2009 that the stimulus would lift "2 million Americans from poverty." But since Obama took office, 6.3 million Americans have fallen into poverty.


     


     The "green economy," Obama vowed, would create millions of jobs. The Energy Department has handed out $35.2 billion in stimulus money to jumpstart the clean energy industry, but it's created more red ink than green jobs. Nationally, green technology accounts for just 2 percent of employment nationwide and there has been no marked boom in the industry.Those loans, however, have created quite the scandal. Nearly half a billion in taxpayer dollars was lost to the now-bankrupt solar energy company Solyndra. The company, which has since laid off over 1,000 workers, was Obama's self-described poster-child for "American ingenuity and dynamism" in 2010. Today, it's the poster-child for the hazards of reckless spending.


     


    Finally, the Obama promiseof "one million electric cars". Obama promised the stimulus would put one million electric vehicles on the road by 2015.  He better hurry, eh?


     


    The amounts given to states by the stimulus ranged widely.  For example, while Florida only received $553 per capita, the District of Columbia walked away with $3,745 per capita.  "The patterns early show that the money went to the places the Democrats represented."


     


    The folly of the federal government's misappropriation of funds can best be summed up with a quote from an Obama Administration official who explained, where government spends taxpayers' money doesn't matter because "giving out money is good for everyone."


    80% of the funds that went to Wisconsin from President Obama’s 2009 stimulus package were dumped into the coffers of public unions. That means unions received $600 million of the $701 million in funding that was sent under the guise of saving that state from catastrophe. The problem is, the only thing it saved were the Democrat dominated unions. Moreover, those unions, with their pockets lined from Obama, used those millions of those dollars to try to oust Gov. Scott Walker from office.

    That's funny because the 21st district in TX, with an identical population as DC, represented by wingnut Lamar Smith received $9,172 per capita.

    But I'm sure there is a perfectly illogical excuse from you about that ...

    And the non-union, right-to-work states received just as much federal money as the union states ... but again I'm sure there's a perfectly illogical excuse for that too.

    Several months ago Rush Limbaugh claimed that over 80% of the federal stimulus funds Wisconsin received went to public unions. Limbaugh said that Wisconsin received $701 million in stimulus money and $600 million went to public sector unions. Is this true?

     Yes, in a round about way.

    statistics put out by former Dem Wis Gov. Jim Doyle that showed that retaining government (public) employment was paramount. Seventy-five percent of the 8,284 jobs attributed to the stimulus money were public sector positions.For the Democratic administration, keeping public employees was key. Of course any Governor would want to reduce unemployment, but reducing public sector unemployment created a chain reaction that ultimately benefited the Democratic party.

    Because public sector employees are forced to join their respective union, and union dues are automatically deducted from their paycheck, it stands to reason that preserving public sector workers, preserves the unions. Limbaugh arrives at his number by watching the flow of money through the funnel. And to take it one step further, we can also extrapolate that the stimulus money was in essence the government paying the government. Because once the union coffers were filled, they had the funds necessary to fund Democratic candidates in the 2010 elections.

    So how can the public union be the largest beneficiary when the largest recipient in the state was a private company, Johnson Controls?

    Obviously something's wrong with the wingnuts 'extrapolation' techniques ... it mysteriously favors their ideology ... go figure.

    I mean, really CLC.

    It's more than a bit perverse to essentially call the stimulus a politically motivated reward scheme, and then complain that it wasn't structured with the political goal of making sure that only private sector companies in non-union states got government contracts.

    [/QUOTE]


    What? Quite a dodge there!

    The stimulus was a failure, and a political slush fund. Cost $10K per taxpayer...better off handing each taxpayer the money,; hey ,  that might have had at least some stimulus effect, better than keeping the Dem political machine of public employees from losing anything, while the private sector was suffering...

    Heh, heh, heh ... not just any wingnut district ... but a deep-in-the-heart of TX district ... and not just any stimulus money ... but 3 times the amount you tried to paint DC with. ... and by far the largest amount of any district in the country.


    But hey, you always get beat at your own game ... you always get caught lying ... and then you cry foul ... as if you were just being an idiot at the start .... so there's no reason to rub your nose in it.

    Where ever did you get the idea that announcing that your opponent is dodging, losing, desperate, etc., demonstrates that whatever you said was correct?

     

     

    First, I showed that you straight-up lied to us (yet again).

     

    Then, I pointed out your stupid hypocrisy.

     

    Sorry if you didn't like it. I'm sure RRF will be by within the hour to approve of one of your rants and further ruin the air with his own contributions.

    This guy's gotta be a plant ... no one is that dumb to actually respond exactly as predicted ... and within the time frame predicted.

    C'mon WDYWN, you're actually posting under RRF ... admit it.

    Yeah, because anyone driving down Storrow Drive can clearly see that our highways are in perfect shape.

    Should be interesting to watch Republicans vote against funds to build highways and bridges in their districts.

    Sorrow drive has been like that since the sixties.  Why the concern now?

    look, government should fix the roads, with the money they have already taken from us.  No need for more.  That they want to squander it on illegal aliens and the like not my problem.
