Reid: Dems will pursue $35 billion stimulus in Obama jobs billDespite the failure of President Obamas jobs bill in the Senate last week, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Monday that Senate Democrats will continue to pursue $30 billion in education stimulus spending included in the bill, along with $5 billion to retain police, firefighters and first responders.
What we got here is another financial injection for unions. I thought that schools, police and firefighters are funded by local taxes. If those locals need more money let them raise it thru the taxes in those communities, why federal gov't has to be involved.
Beside, how long $35 billion will last? Maybe a year, just enough until the election. And then what, cry for another stimulus?
