VP Biden Spins Again, Republicans Caused Stimulus to be Lower that $787 Billion
The Obama White House was back at it lying again on the Sunday talk shows …
This time it was VP Joe Biden who on ABC’s This Week stated that Republicans caused the economic stimulus package to be smaller than $787 billion in order to get their votes. First of all, thank you to any one who would have prevented this wasted stimulus money to be lowered. The Obama stimulus package has been a colossal waste of tax payer dollars that will cost our children and grandchildren for generations to come. What did they want … trillions!
Did Biden and the Obama White House not get the memo that Obama’s policies including the stimulus are looked upon negatively by the American public? The voters are telling Republicans to say “NO” to his economic policies. Obama promised jobs and there has been a net loss of jobs since the stimulus was passed. Obama promised 8% unemployment and we have 9.5% instead.
The truth is that Democrats did not need any Republican votes to pass the stimulus bill, that had overwhelming majorities in the House and Senate to pass the boobdoggle porkulus plan. BTW, what GOP support is Biden referring to? The House passed the bill 244 – 188 with no Republican support.
All but 11 Democrats voted for the plan, and 177 Republicans voted against it. The 244-to-188 vote came a day after Mr. Obama traveled to Capitol Hill to seek Republican backing, if not for the package then on other issues to come.
So what is Biden talking about that they reduced the size of the stimulus because of Republicans? The bill passed in the US Senate 61-37. Seriously, Biden is going to say that the stimulus bill was held hostage by two RINO’s from Maine, Collins and Snowe and a turncoat Republican now Democrat Arlen Specter from PA. Spare us Joe.
Vice President Joe Biden said that the Recovery Act was undersized because the White House shrunk the economic stimulus package to win Republican votes in Congress to pass it.
“I think it would have been bigger,” he told ABC’s Jake Tapper in an interview airing Sunday. “In fact, what we offered was slightly bigger than that.”
In the end, the administration found three Republican votes to pass the Recovery Act. And, while “a lot” of administration officials believe the emergency spending was too small, Biden said that more than 3 million people are now working because of the federal programs.
Dear Mr. Biden, that is 3 million imaginary jobs.
Let’s get this correct. The strategy by Obama and Biden is to say that Republicans prevented the Democrats from further increasing the already out of control federal deficit? Really, isn’t our federal deficit already bad enough.
President Obama, the worst jobs president in American history, has tripled the national deficit and nearly doubled the US unemployment rate from the Bush years since he’s been in office.
Barack Obama’s Keynesian policies have failed but he still wants to blow even more taxpayer cash.
This is exactly the reason why there is continued polling data that states that Americans in a generic ballot will vote for Republicans over Democrats. Even with the GOP credibility in Congress being lower than that of Democrats, 41% would cast a
The poll, released Friday, finds that 41 percent of voters will cast their ballots to register opposition to President Obama’s policies. A third (33 percent) will vote to express their support. The policies of the administration will not be a factor for 20 percent of voters.
By 50-36 percent, more voters think Democratic control of Congress and the White House for the last year and a half has been bad for the country.
By 43-36 percent, more think it would be better for the country if Republicans win control of Congress in this year’s election. Fifteen percent don’t think it would make a difference either way.

People, we must understand that this president, VP & democrats do not care what their voters want.
They are only dedicated, not to the people, but to an ideology.
Should read the comments after this story about Obama’s vacation.. lol here is a few of them.. most of them are even worse against him.. His 7th vacation on the taxpayers dime..they say..
Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel ” pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land”. Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said, “Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a Camel, this is the Promised Land”. Now Obama has stolen your shovel, taxed your asses, raised the price of Camels, and mortgaged the Promised Land!
And obama says Republicans are the party of the rich.
While he flies his dog into toney Bar Harbor on its own jet -and drives his 16 Suburban motorcade to JP Getty’s Tennis Club, on his umpteenth high-dollar vacation of the year.
The hypocrisy is stunning.
Oh come on, people. Obama has only had three vacations since the oil leak began. That’s only ONE per month. Doesn’t everybody take a vacation every month?
And of course he went up north to the coast. The beaches in the Gulf are all icky.
So glad to see the royal family happily vacationing and the fawning minions in the media slavishly informing us of every banal detail and the amount of taxpayer money going up in flames. I didn’t think we were a monarch any longer. Confused.
The President is currently stealing money from the fat
rich (so he claims). How many voters think that he can
stop stealing wealth when the ‘rich’ run low and the
private enterprise wanes? Is it possible the central
government will somehow start earning money for the
first time in history?
An idea for a new enterprise would be for We the People
to create a Rehab center for political parasites to shake off
the addiction of mainlining the OPM drug!
he’s living it up cause he knows he is a one term president. then he’s off to head up the UN.
i pray that our LORD will intervene in this horrible administration. be at the polls in november and be ever diligent of voter fraud.
What they couldn’t fly the dog on the same plane with them? WOW! Nice job of cutting back on the spending there Chief. Vacationing in Maine I see and not the Gulf Coast. Oh that’s right, he doesn’t want his family to get sick from the toxins in the Gulf but it’s safe for the rest of us.
Yep, I disagree with the President YoYo. Now you want to call me a racist? Yes of course you do, that’s all you know how to do.
I could call you a racist for disagreeing with Bush because he was white. I could call you a racist for disagreeing with the tea party (since you think it’s all whites, which it’s not). I could call you a racist simply because you are a race baiter.
Is Obama a racist because he disagrees with the tea party? Is Obama a racist for supporting The Black Panthers? Is Obama a racist for being a member of a anti-white Church for 25 years?
Oh but you are so quick to call me a racist because you assume I’m white and that my kids are white and that I’m married to a white man but what do you really know about me YoYo?
You might be surprised…..Would not matter to you though, because you automatically accuse everyone of being a racist when they disagree with Obama’s policies even when it has nothing to do with skin color.
