    The hell you say?!?!?!?...You mean that the duplicitously dubbed "stimulus" really was just a bailout for state overspending and bureaucrat pension funds.

    How dare they use the money they were given!

    If you are really upset over this, perhaps you shouldnt have given them the money in the first place.
