Stimulus Myths

Feeling the pinch of our current economic doldrums? Wondering if you'll have a job by the end of the month? Have you been mentally counting up the members of your family and friends who have been kicked in the teeth by our current economic crisis?

Looking forward to our country being saved from further economic disaster by our brand, new president? Do you think the $825 billion (and counting) economic stimulus package being passed by the House of Representatives today will solve the problems?

Well, with a tip of the hat to Jeff Solsby over at the Red County OC Blog for the heads-up, I direct you to San Diego Congressman Darrell Issa's opinion piece on the Politico blog today in which he tells us that "the proposed Pelosi-Obey economic stimulus bill is nothing more than an $825 billion earmark that will do little but expand the federal government at the expense of America's long-term economic health". For the full text of Issa's essay click HERE.

Issa represents the 49th Congressional District and is the ranking Republican on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
