New Stimulus Package – 97 Cents Of Every Dollar Goes To Pork – $1,000 Per Illegal Alien

Sen. Inhofe: Stimulus Bill a ‘Big Buyoff’

Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., says the nearly trillion-dollar stimulus package the House of Representatives is heaping on Americans is nothing more than a huge spending bill with projects in it for people the Democratic-led Congress wants to buy off.

Inhofe, who says the bill will do nothing to stimulate the economy, says the bill will provide tax refunds to people who don’t pay any taxes, and would even give government checks of up to $1,000 to illegal aliens

“You have a stimulus bill that’s supposed to stimulate the economy,” Inhofe explains. “We know how to do that. We did it under John Kennedy; we did it under Ronald Reagan. We know what it does and what you have to do for capital gains and for all these things to open up the economy. But this [stimulus package] doesn’t do any of that. There’s so many things in there that are just bad.”

Inhofe notes that a lot of the pork lies in projects that have nothing to do with stimulating the U.S. economy, including:

  • $1.5 billion for homelessness prevention   
  • $650 million for digital TV coupons 
  • $650 million for wildlife management 
  • $600 million for the federal government to buy new green cars 
  • $570 million for climate change   
  • $75 million for smoking cessation activities  “The only tax decreases they have here are refundable tax credits,” Inhofe explains. “And that’s really just giving refunds to people who don’t pay taxes. That has nothing to do with stimulating the economy.”  One of Inhofe’s biggest objections to the $880 billion bill is that there is only $30 billion that goes toward some of what he believes are the real problems that should be addressed, such as roads and highways.  

    Inhofe says he personally met with President Barack Obama Monday to point out that the $30 billion earmarked for infrastructure represents only 3 percent of the total amount of the spending bill.  

    “When I told him that, he didn’t believe it was that small a percentage,” Inhofe says. ”I said, ‘If we find that I’m right and you’re wrong, would you go up to 10 percent?’ And he said, ‘I’d certainly look at that.’ Since then, he realizes that I am right. As far as roads and highways, it’s $30 billion, and then a few [dollars] for water infrastructure.” (CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS – “THE ONE” PROPOSES A TRILLION DOLLAR PORK SPENDING BILL AND “THE ONE” DOESN’T  KNOW WHAT HE AND PELOSI PUT IN IT .    YOU DECIDE,  IS THIS THE “CHANGE” WE WERE PROMISED OR JUST MORE TAX AND SPEND DEMOCRATIC POLITICS)

  • Inhofe believes it is the infrastructure improvements that could provide real jobs, while spurring the economy.
  • “We have over $1 billion worth of projects in America right now that are going to have to be done,” Inhofe points out. “Roads, bridges and that kind of thing; the type of thing government is supposed to be doing. We are going to do it, but this would allow them to do it earlier and use up some of that money they’re throwing away.”
