Change You Can Believe In: Stimulus (Pork Spending) Bill Broke 7 Obama Promises … Open & Transparent … NOT!!!
Barack Obama’s Stimulus bill or at the Gateway Pundit refers to it as the “Generational Theft Act” has already broken seven Obama promises previously made by The One. That didn’t take long at all … talk about change you can believe in. So much for open and transparent as a $787 billion stimulus plan was rammed down America’s throat as politicians voting on it were forced to vote without an opportunity to fully read it. By the way, what happened to the public having 5 days to review?
Sweetness and Light has the full story.
7 Broken Promises in Record Time
1. Make government open and transparent.
2. Make it “impossible” for Congressmen to slip in pork barrel projects.
3. Meetings where laws are written will be more open to the public. (Even Congressional Republicans shut out.)
4. No more secrecy.
5. Public will have 5 days to look at a bill.
6. You’ll know what’s in it.
7. We will put every pork barrel project online
Remember Obama’s promises where he said that “Sunlight is Best Disinfectent”? It would appear that ever since he took office less than a month ago, we have had nothing but cloudy skis and more bad weather on the horizon.
CHANGE? JUST ANOTHER TYPICAL POLITICIAN BREAKING PROMISES
As The Wall Street Journal reports … Obama’s Rhetoric Is the Real ‘Catastrophe’
President Barack Obama has turned fearmongering into an art form. He has repeatedly raised the specter of another Great Depression. First, he did so to win votes in the November election. He has done so again recently to sway congressional votes for his stimulus package.
What happened to the candidate of hope? Obama’s fear mongering has reached new heights. His comparison of today’s economy to The Great Depression to sway a vote is dangerous. Obama knows damn well that our present day economy, although bad, is not at the levels of what it was under Democrat President Jimmy Carter when we had double digit unemployment, inflation and interest rate. Add fuel costs through the roof, odd/even day gas rationing, Iran, Afghanistan and troubles with the Soviets.
