What a shame that only the fear of widespread loss of political power will get the Dems to stop their colossal deficit spending orgy.

The Dems' absolute fear of losing a lot of elections translates to a WIN! for American taxpayers, though!

Why hasn't anyone mentioned that the MAJORITY of that money will end up being spent on ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS rather than AMERICAN CITIZENS????? Why the heck do you think Medicaid is in such bad shape??? - - All the billions of dollars we taxpayers shell out to pay for FREE HEALTH CARE for ILLEGALS!!
And the schools? How on earth are our teachers supposed to be expected to teach all the students correctly when half don't speak English? Anyone have a clue what it costs for all the "English as a second language" classes? All the children in our schools whose parents send their $$ back to their homeland, rather than spending it here,paying taxes!!

I really wish America would wake the hell up ( I voted for Obama, BTW).

Of course we know the NeoConfused would prefer actions like building hospitals in Iraq while ignoring America and Americans.
