“The pain of the recession is being felt by families, small businesses and communities across our nation. With our state facing an unemployment rate of over 7 percent, our top priority must be stimulating the economy and creating jobs now. Unfortunately this bill is not about jobs – it’s about bigger government and more spending.
This bill will saddle our children and grandchildren with massive debt, while failing to provide the type of fast relief needed to help job-creating small businesses and struggling families.
Like many Americans, I don’t believe extra money for the National Endowment for the Arts, computer systems for federal agencies, the 2010 census or NASA climate change research has any place in a bill designed solely to create jobs and stimulate our economy.
We can do better. Providing tax relief to all Americans, holding the line on deficit spending and using taxpayer dollars efficiently is necessary if we want to get our economy back on track now.”
So let's get this straight. He voted against stimulus because the problem with the economy is that taxes are too high, the government is spending too much and tax dollars are not being spent efficiently.
Where was he as billions of dollars went down the rat-hole to contractors in Irag? Oh, that's right. He was cheering from the bleachers.
Puh...lease!!! Will no one rid us of this troublesome lapdog?
