So there seems to be some talk about Stimulus spending.
Let me say this to all of the chattering class that so much focuses on those little, tiny, yes, porky amendments: the American people really don’t care. (link)
Actually, I think we do care. Some highlights include, “$39 billion slush fund for “state fiscal stabilization” bailout” and “$650 million for the DTV transition coupon program”. I’ll take a Raspberry Slushie!
Anyways, with our New York State Batman and Robin leading the charge, I suppose all of our problems are over. I thought I’d take the numbers and bake a pie. A $17,895,000,000 pie. Guess which special interests are represented here? Blue=Health, Reds=Education, Green=Infrastructure, and Purple=Energy. Click for the big chart. Enjoy.
