License to steal

Is there any question that an almost $1 trillion stimulus package is a license for the corrupt in government to steal? First, we had millions proposed to be spent on birth control. The esteemed Speaker of the House even reiterated her belief on national television that this would stimulate the economy . Thankfully, it was deleted from the package.

Now, we have another asinine idea. The plan evidently includes over $300 million for STD prevention. Did you read that? Over $300 million for the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases. How the hell is this going to stimulate the economy? The answer is that it is not. In fact, I would guess that most of this bill is not going to stimulate the economy. This is an assertion that is being backed up by the Heritage Foundation and CBO.

Money is like a drug to a corrupt politician. They cannot seem to spend enough of it.
