Too Late Now.

February 14, 2009

Well, the pork pack passed the senate last night.

Obama will sign the bill in two days.

It is important to point a few things out:

Not one bit of it will permanently help the economy. Parts will not take effect for years. Most of it directs federal money to construction, which of course dumps money into the construction industry, creating  jobs. But these jobs are only temporary. And afterward, we have a bankrupt nation and a bunch of beautiful empty buildings.

When we divide the 789,000,000,000 dollar pork pack between the 15,000,000+ doctors, lawyers, and businessmen that compose the top 5% income group in our country,we notice something: This pork alone costs 1 out of 20 people $52,600 dollars. And this is only the first step. We need to remember that this $52,600 is coming from people that make as little as $250,000 a year. Many of these people are already having trouble paying their mortgage and keeping their business alive.

So, comrades, even though this isn’t directly hurting you and you can now enjoy an extra $8-13 a week, remember: more jobs are going to be cut. Inflation will skyrocket.

But don’t worry. Change is coming.
