More “Stimulus” Package Scams

Congressional leaders want yet more budget-busting, deficit-expanding “stimulus” packages, using the slow economy as an excuse for proposals to bail out state governments that now face deficits as a result of spending binges over the last decade.  Bush opposes the proposals, but they may pass in the next administration.  The stimulus plan passed earlier this year punished hard work and contained pork for special interest groups, while increasing the size of the federal deficit by over $160 billion.
