The 800-billion-dollar bill passed. Don’t forget how this all started. Hint: The government did it. Now the government wants to “fix” their problems with more “free” money.

- Barrel of Pork. This costs more than the War in Afghanistan and Iraq combined… and the money is going to whoever the government picks and chooses.
- Harmed Economy. The Congressional Budget Office reported that this will shrink our economy.
- Desprate Economists. Over 200 economists and the Cato Institute bought full-page ads in the New York times and other newspapers, literally begging congress to reconsider.
But it doesn’t matter. Those with power will continually vote themselves more power when given the chance.
Thomas Jefferson, you are greatly missed.
