"The package has some $11.5 billion to support the IDEA program for special education."

See Link: www.ideaprogram.org...

Yep, that’s 11.5 BILLION tax dollars for a program that forces healthy kids pretend to be disabled.

"make federal buildings more energy efficient and help low-income households weatherize their homes." WTF does that mean? He is going to buy them caulk?

"The package includes money to bring broadband Internet service to underserved areas." So the cable and phone companies can't figure out who is willing to pay for broadband and who isn't. Oh, and who will get the financial rewards from this plan?

I found that Viacom employees donated $93,350 to Obama while just $1,700 to McCain, Time Warner employees gave Obama $84,316 to $13,076 for McCain. Comcast employees gave Obama $135,685 compared to just $62,950 to McCain. Verizon Employees gave Obama $188,192 versus just $50,676 for McCain. Is it any supprise that B., Hussain Obama's Porkulus plan pays for Broadband cables to be paid for by the Government so that the Cable and Telephone companies can charge for high speed without paying for the infrastructure investment. Source: www.opensecrets.org...

You Want Tax Breaks? We Don't Need No F@cking Tax Breaks:

"It includes Obama's signature "Making Work Pay" tax credit for 95 percent of workers, though negotiators agreed to trim the credit to $400 a year instead of $500 — or $800 for married couples, cut from Obama's original proposal of $1,000. It would begin showing up in most workers' paychecks in June as an extra $13 a week in take-home pay, falling to about $8 a week next January."

Yep, that’s a whole $13 bucks a pay check. I guess I can pay for ONE Movie ticket. That is sooooo stimulating.

Now the Jobs:

"The Federal Highway Administration has estimated that every $1 billion the federal government spends on infrastructure projects translates to 35,000 jobs. Collins put the total infrastructure spending — including highways, mass transit, environmental cleanups and broadband facilities — at $150 billion. Do the math and that translates into more than 5 million jobs, based on the highway administration's assumptions."

Are you F@cking kidding me? Okay, so Mr. Investment Banker, Ms. Executive Assistant, Mr. Laid Off IT Guy, Mrs. Out of Work Marketing Manager, you will find you pick ax and shovel by the side of the road. You and I both know that the subcontractors who get these no bid contracts will just swing by Home Depot in the morning and pick up their work force of choice, "Mexicans." - OR - You will need to be in the Union to get a job on a construction site. Guess What, the Teamsters LOVE Hussain.


Weclome to the New Socialism. Your money will be worthless, and Obama will make everyone equal, equally poor!

That is the whole point, but there will be rich people. The rich people are the ones that have to make sure everyone else stays poor. That is why the very people who push for more taxes *cough* Daschle *cough* don't pay into the system themselves.

I am going to take my $676 and buy a plane so I can fly to my island and everyone else can all go to ####....

Seriously I do not think that those in power care what it looks like to every one else. They are probably laughing at all of us right now. They KNOW we are stupid and going to roll over onto all fours, thank them, and ask for another!!!!!!!

I am self employed and on disablity so it looks like I get little to no help once again. I called the IRS and said they knew nothing about any rebate checks. I don't care about the money really; I was just hoping to buy some new clothes, get one of those converter boxes and pay off some bills. After hearing that there was no rebate I was on a crisis line and well had to deal with the police. I was so depressed I hate having NO SAVINGS. I hate wishing I could buy new socks or clothes. I hate feeling as if I am sinking fast. This recession was not my fault; I did not do anything wrong yet it feels as if I am being punished. I worked hard to become self employed; I burned myself out so bad that now I am on my disablity. I worked 2 jobs before. I am going to college full time to get a degree. I even tried to go back to work yet no one is hiring. I am so angry that I had some hope and it was taken away. I am going to owe money in taxes now and where in the world is that coming from. I have overspent on gas so many times. I thought Obama was going to get a gas rebate? This isn't free money here just a repayment on txes overpaid or the money we overpay in gas and the digital transtion that was forced upon us. Our freedoms that have been taken away.. all the Bs we had to endure for this great nation. What if they give all these businesses and banks money and they still do not hire or the banks do not loan money? I talked to Ford in my area who was one of the companies in the big three bailout and they are not hiring? I am going to go to the banks and apply for jobs. I am also going to ask for a loan from my bank if the government is giving them the money that I was supposed to get I want some of it to pay bills even if I have to pay it back. I will be very angry if all this money was wasted! If obama was going to have an $800 stimlus plan why can't it include the citzens of the U.S.? He could have put aside as little as $50 million or so which would be a very small percentage of the overall stimulus packet? If they are giving big business and banks money; each indivual should get at least $1000! I am so sick of the poor and middle class getting messed over again!

If the govt. would have done a one year moratorium on income tax, you know every bit of that would have gone straight into the economy, but nooooo, the greedy guts let us keep $13 of our own hard-earned money. I can't believe I am saying this but I'm about to agree with some of the others at this point: just bring it on --- the best thing would be for this greedy corrupt govt. to completely collapse, then we'll all be in the same boat. Maybe some honest people can rise from the ashes.

I am not filing taxes. Forget that because I made a little bit of wages in self employment they will tax me like 30%. Just because I am self employed does not mean I am rich. I will end up owing money that I do not have. The ironic thing about the United States is if you don't have any money; someone always wants more money from you? It is like if you having a bad time boom lets hit you with something else to really make you suffer. Poverty is created out of our greedy american system. They sit there and bleed you dry even when all your blood is gone!
Who else feels this way? Am I alone? Please reply to let me know that I have found others going through the same thing.
