Some of our 50 states are not accepting stimulus money, including my kind-of-home-state of Louisiana.
Why would a state not take advantage of a bunch of money freely given by the government? Pick me! Pick me!! I know the answer!!
We would be under the subjection and scrutiny of the new administration, the extreme Left, and it’s whim to do it’s bidding. It’s so obvious that Obama and Pelosi are trying to socialize our country and they’re trying to do this one state at a time, one issue at a time.
Example: From the Washington Post – ‘The Obama administration is considering asking Congress to give the Treasury secretary unprecedented powers to initiate the seizure of non-bank financial companies, such as large insurers, investment firms and hedge funds, whose collapse would damage the broader economy, according to an administration document.’ Read the rest of the article here.
Obama goes on to say – ‘President Barack Obama says he hopes “it doesn’t take too long” to convince Congress to approve new authority to oversee financial firms,’ according to the Associated Press today. Read that here.
And, some states are not jumping on the government funding embryonic-stem-cell-research bandwagon.
From Fox News – ‘Legislators across the country are moving to block expanded stem cell research following an executive order from President Obama that loosened restrictions in the controversial field.’ Read the rest of the article here.
NO ONE WANTS TO PAY FOR IT. Besides the fact IT KILLS CHILDREN.
Stop the Pork. Eat Mor Chikin!
Accepting money from a source that looks okay because it comes from a source that just about everyone should trust seems like a good thing. Remember, if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, you’d think it’s a duck, right? Umm…no. It may look like a duck and quack like one, but I smell PORK.
