It did not take long for me to sour on the Congress's new checkbook. The $800 billion dollar economic boost, which is being sold as a rebuilding of roads and bridges is spin.
For every dollar that is spent for small business tax relief, $4 are being spent for the maintenance and new grass in Washington, D.C. $360 million for sexually transmitted disease education $50 million for the National Endowment of Arts $726 million for an after school snack program Office furniture for the public health service More money for Amtrak
Only 3% is going to be used on Roadways. Change we can believe in? I'm waiting for President Obama to weigh in on this.
