It's halftime at a good basketball game, and I was sitting doing what I often do at halftime, when I had a giant epiphany.
The so-called "stimulus" bill and the literally hundreds of billions of dollars it will pump into the coffers of big time Dem supporters, such as ACORN, AIDS clinics, teachers' unions and the like, is a brilliant political move by the Dems. It's more big government/taxpayer money to pay big salaries to people running big, useless government programs, given to people who always vote Democratic!
But that's only half of it!
Not only will Dems get all the benefits, and all the cash, but Republicans and their political brethren will be the only ones pay all the bills! The Dems won't have to pay the extravagant repayment costs, because an overwhelming majority of Democrat voters don't pay federal income taxes! If they do pay income taxes, they often receive offsetting welfare benefits that more than compensate for the income tax they pay. Of course, if inflation hits us all, as it will, their "entitlements" will go up too!
This is a brilliant political move on the Dems part!
It's as if you and your school teacher-neighbor went out and bought a new Cadillac together. But you have to make all the payments, you pay for the insurance, gasoline and maintenance…. and your neighbor is the only one who gets to drive the car!
I know I am probably the last peerson on the block to comprehend the double whammy political and monetary benefits to the Democrats of this plan, but I marvel at Obama, Reid and Pelosi's brilliance. They make Nero, Evita and Al Capone look like rank amateurs!
Welfare class Dems get the gold mine…. and we get the shaft…. and they will keep electing Dems because of it!
