This url goes to the House Updated Version
of the Economic Stimulus Package. An interesting
point is in using the pdf search facility the words
jobs only came up some 18 times in the whole
680 page document. In each case no specifics
were given for JOBS NOW. The reality is at best
any jobs generated in any significant amount
won't happen until 2010 or 2011 or even 2012.
Please note it may take some time to download
683 pages worth in a pdf.
Obama referred to it as Milestone but
in truth it is a Millstone. Paul Hein an
economist wrote this article
In it he makes a point which I have highlighted here:
Here goes: the powers that be WANT the economy
to fail. Why? That’s a good question, but I can only
speculate about the answer. What is clear, however,
is that economic collapse seems guaranteed if the
stimulus package is implemented, and those
advocating it must surely know it.
I will re-write what he asks in the sense of
ancient Rome. When a Roman Emperor was
assassinated the first question asked was:
Cui Bono? ( Who benefits? )
So who is going to benefit from this Economic
Millstone? Read the pdf and unlike our friendly
members of Congress who didn't know
then you will know - who benefits.
