Give that ‘stimulus package’ a couple years and we’ll all be crying

To the Editor:

So Ms. Muftic gets tears in her eyes when she observes Obama. Well folks, let me tell you something: If this spending package passes we will all have tears in our eyes.

Ms. Muftic fails to tell you that 11 Democratic congressmen voted no. The bill as it stands has enough pork in it to start a swine farm. Hopefully the Senate has the guts to either trash this bill or take out all of the ridiculous spending.

If you want stimulus, suspend all taxes federal, state and local for one year and put the money back in the pockets of the people.

Gov. Ritter has caused the mess in the state, and ask yourself why hospital accident wards are closing. You are right ” they can’t keep treating non-paying illegal aliens. Social programs are the darlings of the left and unnecessary. They just love to spend your money.

Should Obama get his way, in one year inflation will go crazy and interest rates will skyrocket. Those of you who are old enough to have suffered through the Carter administration will know exactly what I am talking about.

Yes we will all have tears in our eyes.
