Stimulus

I’m reminded by Jim Geraghty that yesterday was the two-year anniversary of the stimulus package–the $800 billion Keynesian boondoggle merely added to the deficit with no substantial gain.  The NRSC has put together a commemorative video that should remind us all of the outright waste of taxpayer money:

It’s ironic really.  A big portion of the stimulus went to plug the holes of states budgets, so that they could paper over their individual deficits.  Despite warnings from conservative circles, those measures only acted as a band-aid, kicking the can to…2011.   Now we have union protests in Wisconsin led by law-breaking teachers and their union, Democrat politicians literally running for their political lives out of state to avoid the reckoning.    Now those protests are spreading to Ohio and possibly Indiana.

And let’s not forget what Chris Christie has been doing here in the Garden State in addressing the public union parasites straight on for the past year or so.

Yeah.  Happy Anniversary, Stimulus.
