The “stimulus” package is a fraud. All it will accomplish it to drive up the national debt. The last thing this country needs is to take on more future obligations. Congressmen John Shadegg and Jeff Flake were among only 35 members to vote against this bill. Logic is a tough thing to maintain when faced with an onslaught of emotion.
Senator Jon Kyl is also skeptical of the package. Hopefully reason will prevail in the Senate and our elected officials will look toward long-term solutions that will strengthen our economy – tax rates that attract local and international capital and reductions in government spending.
