This "Stimulus" Plan Sucks

It seems that Michael Moore is going to get fatter and fatter. With President Obama's economic recovery package sitting around in Congress getting picked apart, another nice detail comes forward showing that Hollywood will (finally!) benefit from the "stimulus".

In the proposed plan, Hollywood would receive a $246 million tax break over the course of 11 years. Coupled with $335 million towards Herpes prevention, that's about $581 million of "stimulus" going towards a Hollywood tax break and disinfecting Pam Anderson's diseased crotch.

Add $5 billion to build more public housing and we've really got a great plan on our hands.

If Barack Obama is anything like the man he "was" when he ran for office, he needs to figure this bill out and stop caring about if people like him. He promised to clean up Capitol Hill (starting with 2 people he nominated to lead on it). There is some really dumb shit in that bill that is NOT going to help our economy. Right now it's a Democratic laundry list of stuff they've been trying to pass the last 8 years. The sad thing is that we REALLY NEED a stimulus plan. Our economy is in shambles and we need to fix it. Everyone (except idiots) can agree that some of these earmarks make no sense.

Then again, look at the people who are putting stuff into it. Nancy Pelosi recently commented, "Every month that we do not have an economic recovery package, 500 million Americans lose their jobs. I don't think we can go fast enough to stop that." Funny. Last time I checked the population of America was roughly 300 million. Jesus.

We can only hope Barack takes control of this and can fix it. Then, he truly would be a savior.
