House Speaker and top-ranking Democrat, Nancy “President Pelosivich” Pelosi, bragged on TV the other day about her “remarkable package”. (Not so fast, Nancy, I still think Hillary’s would be much bigger, if she would give us a peek).
Only the Democrats would take pride in their “massive package”, when it’s an economic package designed, in part, to give FREE MONEY to people who don’t even pay taxes. How much money, exactly? $28-billion, according to the Associated Press. Um, isn’t that why we have welfare? If it’s not working, then how about reforming the programs?
Apparenty the Senate wants to add some tax breaks for businesses — you know, the people who are actually able to stimulate the economy. Gee, what a novel idea! And here’s another one:
Why don’t we just tell people to stop buying homes they can’t afford (and rent until they actually can, like us responsible folks do), and wait for the positive effects of Bush’s small business tax cuts to kick in?
Government intervention in what’s supposed to be a free market economy only begets more of the same.
As Ronald Reagan — the man responsible for jumpstarting the US econony in his time, via the largest tax cut in American history — once said:
“The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the government and I’m here to help.”
Please, Nancy, put your package away.
