This is time where we need to stimulate the economy right? Well have you looked at the recent package that our government is putting together? You as a American need to know where your hard earned money is going to get this country back on track. I have to share with you a few of them wiht you.
-$100 million for children to learn green construction.
-$6.2 billion yea you read correctly $6.2 billion for home weatherization.
-$50 million for waste water infrastructure needs in Guam.
-$198 million for U.S. military benefits for Filipinos who fought for the U.S. during WWII.
-$75 million for smoking cessation activities. (That must be Barack’s pork add-in)
-$87 million for the design of a new polar icebreaker. (Huh?)
-$600 million to buy hybrid vehicles for federal employees.
This package is supposed to top out at around $900 billion. What can you do? Contact your local state representative and state senator and let them know your thoughts on the package.
