Daily Reminder: January 28, 2012

Included in the $819 billion “stimulus” bill passed by the House (without a single GOP vote) three years ago today:

  • $7.7 billion for upgrades and renovations of federal buildings
  • $5.2 billion for ACORN and other ‘neighborhood stabilization’ groups
  • $2.4 billion for carbon capture projects
  • $650 million for digital television converter box coupons
  • $400 million for research into global warming
  • $335 million for the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases
  • $50 million to the National Endowment for the Arts

And that’s just a tiny smattering of what was in the House bill. The law as passed was for $862 billion, and its consequences can only be measured in trillions of dollars spent and millions of jobs lost.

    In addition to the bad fiscal policy, the Stimulus abolished Welfare Reform. How does this go unmentioned?
