New York Stimulus Pie

February 11th, 2009 · No Comments · News

So there seems to be some talk about Stimulus spending.

Political IV is running down the Pork Items.  He helpfully reminds us of our friend Chuckie.

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!

Meanwhile, Brian is agonizingly cogitating about Free Trade over at The In Boxhere, here, and here.  Why can’t some real economists chime in?

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.
