Stimulus Package not so Stimulating!

Between my daughter's play, my design business, and hosting the party site....my blog is getting a bit neglected. Sorry. But I'm back and I have a bit of a rant for ya'll!!

The Stimulus Package....is a bunch of crap-olah!

Here is a first hand story for you. My hubby works for a construction company. That company had gotten a contract to work on a government project. It was negotiated work and did not have to be bid. Then two weeks later the Stimulus Package was passed. The government said, "WAIT!" We have to take the contract back! This project is NOW going to be funded by the Stimulus Package. (um...hello there were obviously already funds for it...why did it need to be funded under the Stimulus Package?) This time the job would go out to bid by several construction companies. In the end the company my husband works for won the bid and "got the job again". So HERE is the real KICKER in all of this people.

This was a project that existed and was already going to happen and provide jobs for all the people who were going to work on it....BUT since they took it back and placed it under the STIMULUS package NOW it will go into the statistics of "new jobs" that were created under the Stimulus Package.

Do you get it people? Do you see the lie? I'm not saying that no new jobs are being created...I AM saying that the government is padding the numbers big time!!! It's a bunch of crap-olah!

  10. The whole stimulus package is crap-ola. All of it. We're only in a ton more debt than we were before. It's certainly not any better.
