President Obama bails out on change again

This President told us he would change Washington. He said it was going to be different. Today was another example of how nothing changed and everything is the same as it ever was. The House pushed through an emergency $26 billion jobs bill that Democrats said would save 300,000 teachers, police and others from election-year layoffs. President Barack Obama immediately signed it into law. The troublesome thing is these people do not understand you cannot keep spending at sometime you have to cut. They never do and look like never will. If we need to give money to fund unemployment, and the stimulus then somebody has give back. We understand losing 300,000 teachers and police is bad. Does anyone really believe that number? Does anyone think the union would let it happen? This one-day expensive session was a giveaway to teacher union and another example of wasteful Washington spending. The vote was 247-161 the only good news is the aid for the states is to be paid for mostly by closing a tax loophole used by multinational corporations and by reducing food stamp benefits for the poor. The legislation provides $10 billion to school districts to rehire laid-off teachers and an additional $16 billion would extend for six months increased Medicaid payments to the states. That would free money for states to meet other budget priorities, including keeping more than 150,000 police officers and other public workers on the payroll. Today your government spent another $26 billion they did not have to give money to states that already spent it and factored into their budgets when will it end when does it stop?
