Date: 2/23/2009Regarding President Obama's proposed stimulus package: Republicans are blaming Democrats for throwing money at problems? Ha! Give me a break. What, pray tell, do the Republicans call all the taxpayer money that disappeared without a trace; to contractors in Iraq? Or the millions and billions, no strings attached, showered on the bankers and Wall Street geniuses who have brought our economy down while continuing to give themselves bonuses and own $35,000 antique commodes? Or the money the Bush government spent lying about and dismantling our laws on the environment, labor, consumer safety, the Justice Department, etc. If anyone wins the prize for throwing taxpayer money away, it's the Republicans.
