Senator Charles Schumer (D) on the “stimulus” (read: pork spending) bill:
“Why quibble over $200 million?” he asked during an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” …
Why? Because it’s not your money Senator. You’re spending my money, my children’s money, my grand-children’s money, and my great-grand-children’s money. Have you no decency and fiscal responsibility Senator?
Congress once again descends to new lows in fiscal responsibility as they’re mortgaging our future to return political campaign favors to ACORN, National Endowment for the arts, unions, and others. In spite of citizen’s desire to not waste money on stimulus that isn’t, Congress thumbs their noses at mere citizens and does it anyway.
Remember when President Bush was in office and the deficit was bad, and his spending disgraceful? Now Mr. Obama takes control (as part of Team RePO), who cares how much Congress spends? It’s a free for all! Everyone on board! No need to rush, plenty of pork to pass around! There’s so much pork, Senator Schumer doesn’t want to quibble over pocket change … like $200 million.
After all, there’s room at the trough for everyone.
